Brief Summary:

The study is a prospective, controlled, randomised and assessor blind study that investigate if the need for bank blood transfusion could be reduced in patients, undergoing primary or revision total hip replacement surgery, who receive their own blood back with the medical device Sangvia.

A comparison in need for bank blood will be made between patients that either receive their own blood back or not.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1 Device: Sangvia® System
Sangvia® Intra- and Post-op System
No Intervention: 2

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants in Need for Bank Blood Transfusion [ Time Frame: At discharge ]

    Bank blood transfusions were given in both groups after assessment of independent assessor, by using a transfusion trigger. All transfusions were recorded in a transfusion log and summarized at discharge. The total number of patients per group in need for any bank blood transfusion was compared.

    The participant were followed for the duration of hospital stay, an average of 6 days (SD 3 days)
