Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary aim is to determine whether length of storage of Red Blood Cells is related to postoperative morbid outcomes in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. [ Time Frame: 30 days post surgery. ]

Estimated Enrollment: 2800
Study Start Date: April 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Prolonged RBC storage
Transfusion with oldest available matching RBCs.
Biological: Prolonged RBC storage
Transfusion with oldest available matching RBCs
Active Comparator: Short RBC storage
Transfusion with youngest available matching RBCs.
Biological: Short RBC storage
Transfusion with youngest available matching RBCs

Detailed Description:
Subjects undergoing cardiac surgery will be randomized into one of two groups. Group A will receive transfused blood that has storage duration less than 14 days. Group B will receive transfused blood with a storage duration of more than 20 days.
