These investigators report success in using pre-treatment plasmapheresis performed on alternate days until the ABO antibody
titers are less than or equal to 1:16, and until the cytotoxic crossmatch is negative (if previously positive).
An exception was made to data collection design whenever a sample contained an ABO antibody
incompatible with the donor sample.
