Long day, but worth it. Total spine reconstruction.

Joan had multiple compression fractures w surgery done out in westrern
nc about 5 hrs away near Asheville. She continued to collapse, pulling
out screws. She also had severe stenosis.

I spent 5 hours straightening her up T2-iliac wing w osteotomies and
No complications.
Ebl 2475 cc
Correction: excellent

A good day.
We got delayed for several hours during day since pt had lots of
antibodies in her blood, which made cross match a real challenge.

Always tell your surgeon if you have had blood transusions or previous
transfusion reactions. This sometimes helps to determine who might be
tough cross match.
