Blood Loss During Total Hip
Arthroplast
  

  • Walker RW, Blend JM, Rosson
    JR,
    Blood Loss During Primary Total
    Hip Arthroplalsty : Use of Preoperative Measurements
    to Predict the Need for Transfusion

    Ann R Coll Surg Eng 79: 438-440,
    1997
     
    Blood loss during total hip
    arthroplasty depends on various factors, such as
    anesthetic technique, operative approach, procedure
    duration, cement use, and previous exposure to aspirin
    and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory
    drugs.
     
    Blood loss in 53 patients
    undergoing total hip arthroplasty were examined. 
    In all patients calculated blood loss exceeded
    actual blood loss. Preoperative packed cell volume
    [PCV] was the most significant predictor of
    transfusion needs and postoperative PCV.
     
    Blood loss during total hip
    arthroplasty varies in different patients with
    the same anesthetist-surgeon team; preoperative PCV is
    a good predictor of transfusion needs.
