(1) Background: This examine evaluated the perioperative purple 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: Information from all sufferers present process backbone surgical procedure between 1 January 2014 and 31 December 2016 had been reviewed. Sufferers’ demographics and comorbidities, perioperative laboratory outcomes, and operative time had 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 had been carried out over the three years. Solely 54 instances (6%) required RBC transfusion. In comparison with the non-transfused sufferers, transfused sufferers had been primarily feminine (p = zero.0008), considerably older, with a better 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)), a better ASA class (1.77 (1.03-Three.05)) and an extended operative time (1.02 (1.01-1.02)) had 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. Elements anticipating transfusion needs to be considered within the affected person’s pre-surgery preparation.
