A preventive approach is now also advocated in patients of severe TI and consists of regular transfusion-chelation therapy from the very young age in order to prevent the complications.9,10 The evidence in favour of benefits of regular transfusion-chelation can be drawn from the well managed cases of TM, where it has prevented or markedly reduced complications such as fractures, extramedullary haemopoiesis, endocrinopathies, thromboembolism, and pulmonary hypertension.7 The disadvantages include problems concerning regular availability of safe blood, inconvenience related to transfusion-chelation, iron overload, infections and alloimmunization.
