Curr Opin Hematol 2001;8(5):319-325.
Review by : V. Kretschmer.
A very important and hopefully stimulating publication. Obviously, our knowledge of the bleeding complications in hypoplastic patients can not simply be transferred to patients after bone marrow transplantation. Further studies are necessary to find out which additional factors besides thrombocytopenia play a role, and what can be done to positively influence the prognosis of patients with hemorrhage after BMT.
MISSION: Providing a multidisciplinary forum for dialogue between haematologists, transfusion medicine specialists, anaesthesiologists, intensive care and emergency physicians, surgeons, perfusionists, nurses, biomedical scientists and other healthcare professionals.
