ABSTRACT
Postoperative complications associated with blood transfusions are frequently reported to be a result of the transfused leukocytes. This paper examines the effects of leukocyte depletion. Leukocyte depletion by filtration which can reduce leukocyte presence by more than 99.9%. The implications of this are postulated in terms of the results that may be obtained.
