It is unclear whether transfusion of platelets or fresh frozen plasma, in addition to red blood cells, is associated with an increased risk of mortality and infection after cardiac surgery.

Does the evidence support the importance of high transfusion ratios of plasma and platelets to red blood cells in improving outcomes in severely injured patients: a systematic review and meta-analyses.
Deaths by exsanguination in trauma are preventable with hemorrhage control and resuscitation with fresh frozen plasma (FFP), platelets (PLT) and red blood cells (RBC). The ideal transfusion ratio is u...
Optimal transfusion management is crucial when treating patients with trauma. However, the association of an early, high transfusion ratio of fresh frozen plasma (FFP) to packed red blood cells (PRBC)...
Fresh frozen plasma is often used to prime the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit for pediatric cardiac surgical patients to help offset dilutional coagulopathy that might result in increased perioperativ...

The efficacy of fresh frozen plasma (FFP) transfusion in enhancing thrombin generation in patients with cirrhosis and impaired conventional coagulation tests has not been sufficiently explored.
The aim of the CeKATU study is to describe the transfusion practices in patients undergoing major surgery in Turkey. The transfusion rates of red blood cells (RBC), fresh frozen plasma (FF...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate prophylactic fresh frozen plasma transfusion in patients with moderately elevated international normalized ratios (INR) prior to undergoing an inva...
With the aim to restrict inappropriate fresh frozen plasma (FFP) transfusions to critically ill patients, a randomized clinical trial will be conducted in a subgroup of intensive care (ICU...
Prospective, randomized, double blind trial. The rationale of the study is the concept that fresh frozen plasma (FFP) is still largely used in cardiac surgery, despite the fact that prothr...
Coagulation abnormalities after pediatric open-heart surgery are complex and very often multifactorial. Besides the cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), the congenital pathology and the coagulati...
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
The transfer of blood components such as erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets, and plasma from a donor to a recipient or back to the donor. This process differs from the procedures undertaken in PLASMAPHERESIS and types of CYTAPHERESIS; (PLATELETPHERESIS and LEUKAPHERESIS) where, following the removal of plasma or the specific cell components, the remainder is transfused back to the donor.
The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.
The deformation and flow behavior of BLOOD and its elements i.e., PLASMA; ERYTHROCYTES; WHITE BLOOD CELLS; and BLOOD PLATELETS.
The area of hematology that is concerned with the transfusion of blood and blood components, and in prevention and treatment of adverse effects from BLOOD TRANSFUSION errors.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
