Clinical Applications

Despite being a widely used procedure, there are known risks associated with blood transfusion. Adverse events are still found in clinical practice related either directly or indirectly to homologous blood transfusion.3,4

Autotransfusion plays a key role as part of an effective blood management strategy.5 It can contribute to improved clinical outcomes in a cost-effective manner, either as stand-alone or as part of a Patient Blood Management program.6-8

Safety Information


EU/International: XTRA is indicated for use for intraoperative recovery of blood, washing of blood collected in the postoperative period and preoperative sequestration (with indirect patient connection). The XVAC is indicated for use for intraoperative and postoperative recovery of blood for autotransfusion procedures. Intraoperative blood salvage is widely employed in surgical procedures where blood loss occurs during the course of the operation, whereas postoperative blood salvage is used in surgical procedures where bleeding may occur during the postoperative course. Typical clinical applications of autotransfusion include the following surgical specialties: Cardiovascular, Orthopedics, Thoracic, Transplant Surgery, Emergency (Trauma), Neurosurgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Urology.

US: The XTRA Autotransfusion System is indicated for intraoperative and postoperative recovery of blood, washing of the processed blood and preoperative sequestration (with indirect patient connection). Typical clinical applications of autotransfusion include the following surgical specialties: Cardiovascular, Orthopedics, Thoracic, Transplant Surgery, Emergency (Trauma), Neurosurgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Urology. The XVAC is indicated for use only with the XTRA, an autologous blood recovery system indicated for intra-and post-operative autotransfusion, as well as for pre-operative sequestration.
