TAPS is a sequential trial which aims to investigate whether the administration of a blood transfusion pre-operatively to patients with sickle cell disease (HB SS or Hb SB0 thal)having low or medium risk elective surgery increases or decreases the overall rate of peri-operative complications. The proportion of patients with peri-operative complications in two randomised groups of transfused and untransfused patients will be compared.
