Abstract

Patients with bone marrow failure and severe thrombocytopenia are frequently given prophylactic platelet transfusion before interventions. The clinical effects of such transfusions, however, are poorly defined. We performed a prospective observational study on patients with bone marrow failure scheduled for prophylactic platelet transfusion before the insertion of a central venous catheter. The objectives were to evaluate the effect and duration of prophylactic platelet transfusions on central venous catheter insertion in thrombocytopenic patients with bone marrow failure.
