ABSTRACT:

Abstract: Objective: The main idea of this case work is to assess the ratios of transfusion of the blood and ordering of blood in the elective cholecystectomy. Methodology: All the patients who faced the elective cholecystectomy in surgical Unit-2 of General Hospital, Lahore from January 2018 to December 2018 for a period of complete one year were the part of this case work. The cross matching of the units of blood carried out and units transfused during surgery and after surgery were in the record regardless the demography of patient and their profile for hepatitis. Results: A sum of one hundred and thirty two patients underwent open cholecystectomy in the duration of this case work. The arrangement of total one hundred and eighty one units of blood carried out, among them the transfusion of only nine units of blood conducted. This shows that only 4.90% blood utilization carried out whereas 95.10% was not in utilization. The ratio of cross match to transfusion was 20.11, probability of transfusion was 6.80 & transfusion index was 0.06. Conclusion: There is no requirement of the normal regular blood cross-matching for the elective open cholecystectomy. But, one should have the confirmation the presence of blood for patients reactive with infections of HBV & HCV and for the patients suffering from the recurring attacks of acute cholecystitis. Keywords: Transfusion, HBV, HCV, blood, cholecystectomy, profile, demography, underwent, regardless, probability, arrangement, elective, surgery, cross-matching, index.
