Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of storage duration of transfused red blood cells with the risk of postoperative serious adverse events in pediatric cardiac surgery patients. We studied 517 patients and found that 22 patients (4.3%) had at least one serious adverse event. The maximum and mean storage duration of transfused red blood cells did not differ significantly between patients with and without serious adverse events (maximum, p = 0.89; mean, p = 0.81). In our study of pediatric cardiac surgery patients, the storage duration of transfused red blood cells was not significantly associated with the risk of serious adverse events.
