Abstract

Purpose: We investigated differences in the rate of homologous blood transfusion and the degree of anemia to determine whether it is rational to have patients donate autologous blood before radical prostatectomy. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 221 consecutive men who underwent radical retropubic prostatectomy performed by 1 surgeon in a 14-month period. About half of the patients donated autologous blood preoperatively. We evaluated perioperative hemoglobin, and the rate of autologous and homologous transfusion. Results: The groups did not significantly differ in terms of demographic data, co-morbid conditions, clinical variables or hospitalization. Preoperatively mean hemoglobin plus or minus standard deviation was 13.4 ± 1 and 14.7 ± 1 gm./dl. in patients who did and did not donate blood, while homologous transfusion was required in 1 (1%) and 4 (3.5%), respectively (p = 0.18). At hospital discharge anemia was more prevalent in nondonors. Of the men who did versus did not donate blood hemoglobin was less than 10 and less than 9 gm./dl. in 8.4% versus 34% (p
