ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of a study on the storage duration of red blood cells (RBC) and its effects on patients. Data from the study showed that the length of time that RBC are stored may affect patients' risk for complications and overall survival rates after cardiac surgery. A well-designed large, randomized prospective trial is suggested to provide more definitive data on blood storage.
