Learning Objectives

After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Provide an update on ABO incompatible HSCT including a review of potential complications.
  • Discuss transfusion support issues following ABO-incompatible HSCT.
  • Review data/information relating to ABO-incompatible HSCT from different facilities including protocols for transfusion support, monitoring for hemolysis, and switching blood type.

Program Description: ABO-incompatible hematopoietic stem cell transplantations (HCST) are frequently performed. Patients require significant transfusion support primarily with RBCs and Platelets until engraftment occurs. This program will provide an update on ABO-incompatible HSCT and review potential complications such as immediate and delayed hemolysis. Speakers will share information and data on ABO-incompatible HSCTs from their institutions and review protocols for transfusion support and blood typing of patients following an ABO-incompatible HSCT.
