UK trial randomized 2007 adults undergoing nonemergent cardiac surgery to restrictive (7.5 g/dL) vs. liberal (9.0 g/dL) postoperative PRBC transfusion thresholds. Similar rates of combined primary endpoint, but significant increase in mortality in restrictive group and comparable between-group costs. Results are perhaps contrary to prevailing wisdom regarding transfusion targets.
