Abstract

The authors discuss the numerical increase in fractures of the acetabulum and the extent of surgical indications for their treatment, emphasizing the modernness and the usefulness of methods used to save blood in this type of surgery, which often involves a considerable loss. Out of 150 operations performed between 1985 and 1990 for trauma of the pelvis, 35% of the patients was not transfused with homologous blood, 25% was transfused with 1 U, 40% with several units (4.7 U on the average). Generally, the average quantity of erythrocytes transfused per patient was 2 U (440 ml).
