Homologous transfusions are mandatory in most surgical procedures for correcting craniofacial malformations in infancy. A program of preoperative and intraoperative auto-hemodonation was developed and carried out in eleven infants. Although homologous transfusion could have been avoided in only 7 patients, we think that further experiences and minor corrections of our program may improve these results.
