The availability of centrifugal cell savers support intraoperative cell salvage and thereby reduces the need for allogeneic red blood cell transfusion. Use of these devices however is limited to the operating room, forcing a switch to allogeneic product in the post-operative setting. Here we present a case of massive postoperative bleeding due to severe coagulopathy following CABG. Due to the lack of availability of donor blood products a novel blood filter (HemoClear BV, Zwolle, the Netherlands) was used for postoperative salvage. Because of its accessible use, we believe this salvage device has great clinical value in the poor-resource setting.
