Forty-six radical prostatectomy patients in whom an autologous transfusion had been performed in our hospital were studied retrospectively. Preoperative autologous donation (PAD), erythropoietin (EPO) administration and acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) were used for autologous transfusion. Red blood cell volume lost during hospitalization was calculated as 1329 ± 493 ml. Red blood cell volume saved by PAD and ANH were calculated as 470 ± 33 ml and 301 ± 90 ml, respectively. Three patients made use of allogeneic blood transfusion. Radical prostatectomy can be performed using PAD, EPO and ANH without allogeneic transfusion.
