Complications to bone marrow donors were analyzed for 2027 transplants reported to the International Bone Marrow Transplant Registry and for 1263 transplants performed in Seattle. Thus, a total of 3290 donor risk episodes were available for study. The incidence of major, i.e., life-threatening complications in the combined series was 0.27%. Neither death nor permanent residua occurred in any of the donors.
