Comparison of the Rate of Preoperative Haemoglobin After Administration of Epoetin Alpha Associated With an Oral Medical Supplementation Versus Intravenous Before Surgery of Craniosynostosis at the Child
Oral iron is commonly used in conjunction with EPO preoperatively for hemorrhagic surgeries in children and especially in the surgery of craniosynostosis. The bioavailability of oral iron is low and compliance with treatment is inconsistent. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether the use of ferric carboxymaltose by injection, which has a much better bioavailability, would make it possible to increase the preoperative hemoglobin level more effectively and thus reduce the risk of perioperative blood transfusion .
