Phlebotomy has been used as a primary method for the treatment of erythrocytosis. As a new phlebotomy method, we used an automated component collection system (Alyx, Fenwal), which has been used to obtain two units of leukoreduced red blood cells (RBCs) from donors. We evaluated the effectiveness of "double red-cell" phlebotomy (DRP) and compared it with conventional "whole-blood" phlebotomy (WBP).
