The need for blood transfusion during abdominal aneurysm repair can be considerable (number of donor RBCs units transfused per patient in range 1–30). Blood is a product with limited resources. Also safety and cost of allogenic blood are very important matters which results with constantely search for alternative methods of blood conservation during the operations, including intraoperative red cell salvage. Aim: Our goal was to provide information for use of allogenic blood in surgical procedures where there is excessive blood loss such as abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery, in relation to the usage of cell savers.
