Experience with intraperitoneal blood transfusion, using ultrasonographic guide, in 24 patients with severe isoimmunization to Rh factor, is reported. A total of 57 procedures, were done from 24 weeks of gestation. In 66.6% two or more transfusions were done in the same product. There were 71% of alive newborns and in 29% of the cases it was not possible to improve perinatal survival.

The usefulness of intraperitoneal transfusion, is commented upon, and new perspectives, as intravascular transfusion in cases with severe hydrops, are considered.
