Abstract

Concern has been raised that collection of cord blood for banking and transplantation purposes may harm the newborn donor. Although these concerns have not been substantiated, a perceived risk refers to possible abrupt rises of intracranial blood pressure in case of early cord clamping, which in turn might cause brain hemorrhage, or to blood volume depletion that might cause cerebral ischemia. To collect evidence regarding the above concerns, we performed cerebral echo scans in 120 consecutive healthy full-term newborns donating cord blood at our cord blood bank. Time of clamping was chosen by the midwifes according to local delivery procedures and was not influenced by the performance of the present study or the banking procedure. Seventeen babies were clamped early after birth (
