Abstract

Objective The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of blood conservation strategies on patient outcomes after aortic surgery. Design Retrospective cohort analysis of prospective data. Setting University hospital. Participants Patients undergoing thoracic aortic surgery. Interventions One hundred thirty-two consecutive high-risk patients (mean EuroSCORE 10.4%) underwent thoracic aortic aneurysm or dissection repair from January 2010 to September 2011. A blood conservation strategy (BCS) focused on limitation of hemodilution and tolerance of perioperative anemia was used in 57 patients (43.2%); the remaining 75 (56.8%) patients were managed by traditional methods. Mortality, major complications, and red blood cell transfusion requirements were assessed. Independent risk factors for clinical outcomes were determined by multivariate analyses. Measurements and Main Results Hospital mortality was 9.8% (13 of 132). Lower preoperative hemoglobin was an independent predictor of mortality (p
