Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The mortality of exchange transfusions and risks associated with hyperbilirubinemia experienced with 202 exchange transfusions performed on 143 newborn infants, have been reviewed. A large proportion of the infants belonged to the groups with ABO or no incompatibility. In view of the high risk of kernicterus in severe hyperbilirubinemia, exchange transfusion should be attempted even in the face of poor general condition in such cases.
