Abstract (Croatian)
U bolesnika sa sindromom mijelodisplazije, preopterećenje željezom ozbiljna je komplikacija bolesti, na čiju pojavu ponajviše utječu višestruke transfuzije deplazmatiziranih eritrocita. Preopterećenje željezom pridonosi daljnjem oštećenju organa, te vjerojatno nepovoljno utječe na preživljenje bolesnika. Postoje radovi koji pokazuju da terapijska uporaba kelatora željeza može smanjiti morbiditet i mortalitet ovih bolesnika. U ovom radu objavljene su smjernice Hrvatske kooperativne grupe za hematološke bolesti (Krohem) za dijagnozu, liječenje i praćenje preopterećenja željezom u bolesnika sa sindromom mijelodisplazije.
Abstract (English)
In patients with myelodysplastic syndrome, iron overload is a serious complication caused mostly by repeated red blood cell transfusions. Iron overload contributes to organ dysfunction and probably has a negative impact on patient’s survival. Several publications suggest that iron chelation therapy can decrease morbidity and mortality of these patients. In this paper we review the guidelines of the Croatian Cooperative Group for Hematological Diseases (Krohem) for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of the iron overload in myelodysplastic syndrome.
