Abstract

Objective : The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of intra-operative cell salvage system (ICS) to decrease the need for allogeneic transfusions in patients undergoing major spinal deformity surgeries. Methods : A total of 113 consecutive patients undergoing long level posterior spinal segmental instrumented fusion (=5 levels) for spinal deformity correction were enrolled. Data including the osteotomy status, the number of fused segments, estimated blood loss, intra-operative transfusion amount by ICS (Cell Saver®, Haemonetics
