Acute hemolytic transfusion reaction

Acute hemolytic transfusion reaction

  • ABO incompatability is the major cause of death from transfusion

  • 125 deaths reported to FDA due to ABO incompatable transfusion from 1976 to 1985. Sazama et al. Transfusion 1990 Sep;30(7):583-90.

  • IgM anti-A and anti-B fix complement  rapid intravascular hemolysis

    • Acute renal failure from ATN

    • DIC

    • Shock

    • Hyperkalemia

  • Renal failure can be caused by direct toxicity of hemoglobin and by renal ischemia from shock


Hemoglobinuria

Hemoglobinuria

Alpha-Beta dimers MW 34,000 -- small enough to be filtered by glomerulus


Proposed mechanisms of renal injury

Proposed mechanisms of renal injury

1. Obstruction of tubules with heme pigment casts

2. Oxidative damage to proximal tubule by released free iron

Low FENa characteristic


Prevention of arf

Prevention of ARF

  • Volume repletion

  • Alkalinization of urine

  • Mannitol diuresis


Alkalinization of urine and mannitol

Alkalinization of urine and mannitol

  • Hemoglobin less likely to precipitate with Tamm-Horsfall protein in alkaline urine

  • Alkalinization stabilizes reactive iron species

  • Mannitol acts as an osmotic diuretic, dilates renal vasculature, and is an antioxidant


A retrospective series brown et al j trauma 56 6 2004

A retrospective seriesBrown et al. J Trauma 56(6) 2004

  • Series of 382 patients with serum CK concentration >5000 U/L, 154 (40 percent) were treated with bicarbonate and mannitol

  • No statistically significant difference in the incidence of:

    • renal failure as defined by Cr >2.0 (22 versus 18 percent)

    • dialysis (7 versus 6 percent)

    • death (15 versus 18 percent)


A case report amyot et al intensive care med 25 1999

A case reportAmyot et al. Intensive Care Med. 25. 1999

  • A 30yo man with myoglobin-induced renal failure was treated with CVVH for 33h

  • Blood flow 150 mL/min, ultrafiltration rate 2 to 3L/h

  • Serum myoglobin (MW 17,000) concentration decreased from 92,000 ug/L to 28,600 ug/L after 18h

  • Required HD for 25 days and eventually recovered normal renal function


Preventing hemolysis recombinant complement receptor 1 yazdanbakhsh et al blood 101 12 2003

Preventing hemolysis – recombinant complement receptor 1 Yazdanbakhsh et al. Blood 101 (12) 2003

  • Complement receptor 1 (CR1) – transmembrane protein that inhibits C3 and C5 convertases and cofactor for serum protease 1

  • Mouse study: recombinant soluble form of CR1 inhibited complement activation in mice with pre-existing anti-A transfused with human group A RBCs

  • RBC survival increased by 50%
