Haemodilution resulting from crystalloid priming of the cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuit is one of the important reasons for blood transfusion in cardiac surgery, especially in patients with low body surface area (BSA). A prospective study was performed to investigate the technique of intraoperative blood donation (IAD) and retrograde autogous priming (RAP) to limit haemodilution and transfusion requirements. Forty patients with low BSA (
