Özet

Transfusion transmitted viruses (TTV) were investigated in cardiac surgery cases who were previously transfused with blood and/or blood products and were suspected of having posttransfusion hepatitis (PTH) based on the results of physical examination, clinical findings, biochemical blood test results and in a smaller number, on radiological results. They were identified as having non-A-C hepatitis based on serological or molecular test methods.
