Abstract

The authors present five cases where a cell saver was used in rupture of an aneurysm of the abdominal aorta. During the peroperative collection they obtained 830 +/- 150 ml of autologous red cell concentrate. They assume that this blood is an invaluable source of volume replacement during urgent operations on the abdominal aorta.
