Abstract

A study was conducted in our Department on 110 consecutive patients undergoing oesophageal resection for primary cancer, in order to evaluate the incidence of postoperative infections related to perioperative allogenic blood transfusions. For each patient we registered the administration of allogenic perioperative blood transfusions (period of administration, number of packages administered). Among the enrolled 110 patients, 53 (48%) received perioperative blood transfusions: in this group postoperative infections (overall infective complications) occurred in 27 patients. After a multivariate analysis we observed that perioperative blood transfusions significantly affected as an independent variable the development of wound infections (p=0.02). Blood transfusions independently affected the incidence of wound infections in patients who underwent oesophageal resection for primary cancer.
