(1) Background: This research evaluated the perioperative crimson blood cell (RBC) transfusion want and decided predictors for transfusion in sufferers present process elective major lumbar posterior backbone fusion in a high-volume heart for backbone surgical procedure. (2) Strategies: Knowledge from all sufferers present process backbone surgical procedure between 1 January 2014 and 31 December 2016 have been reviewed. Sufferers’ demographics and comorbidities, perioperative laboratory outcomes, and operative time have been analyzed in relation to RBC transfusion. Multivariate logistic regression evaluation was carried out to establish the predictors of transfusion. (Three) Outcomes: A complete of 874 elective surgical procedures for major backbone fusion have been carried out over the three years. Solely 54 circumstances (6%) required RBC transfusion. In comparison with the non-transfused sufferers, transfused sufferers have been primarily feminine (p = zero.0008), considerably older, with the next ASA grade (p = zero.0002), and with decrease pre-surgery hemoglobin (HB) stage and hematocrit (p < zero.0001). Within the multivariate logistic regression, a decrease pre-surgery HB (OR (95% CI) 2.84 (2.11-Three.82)), the next ASA class (1.77 (1.03-Three.05)) and an extended operative time (1.02 (1.01-1.02)) have been independently related to RBC transfusion. (four) Conclusions: Within the occasion of elective surgical procedure for major posterior lumbar fusion in a high-volume heart for backbone surgical procedure, the necessity for RBC transfusion is low. Components anticipating transfusion ought to be considered within the affected person’s pre-surgery preparation.
