Abstract

The Spectra Optia device proved to be highly efficient in depleting RBCs in HC patients and allows for short procedure time. The Optia device can be safely used in this clinical setting. We recommend its use in case of severe iron overload if rapid iron depletion needs to be achieved and in case of cardiac compromise due to less blood volume removed.
