Will I need transfusions during revascularization?
Based on each type of intervention, we always tell our patients if a transfusion might be necessary and help them prepare accordingly.
Revascularization is one of the procedures that might involve a blood transfusion.
Therefore, you might be required to bank your blood in case you need a transfusion during or after the surgery.
Your doctor will not be able to tell you precisely how necessary the transfusion is until the intervention takes place. Unless your surgery is urgent, you will have the necessary time to bank your own blood before the surgery.
