Sample text

Fetal transfusion Intrauterine transfusions may use either red cells to correct fetal anaemia such as caused by maternal red cell alloantibodies causing haemolytic disease or, more rarely, platelets when there is fetal alloimmune thrombocytopenia. Routine antenatal and postnatal anti-D immunoglobulin (Ig) prophylaxis for all Rh-negative women (see Chapter 6) has decreased the incidence of haemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn, so the number of red cell intrauterine transfusions has decreased markedly over the last 20 years.

Bleeding in patients who lack human platelet antigens Patients who lack the glycoproteins carrying HPAs, such as those with Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia or Bernard–Soulier syndrome, may develop isoantibodies after transfusion or pregnancy. The current protocol for the transfusion support of such patients includes the use of HLA-matched platelets on the assumption that these will reduce the risk of alloimmunization in these transfusion-dependent patients. Patients with preformed anti-HPA can develop post-transfusion purpura (PTP) when challenged by subsequent transfusions of blood components that contain platelets.
