RIVAS, Mauricio et al. Hemolytic anemia after mitral valve repair: case report. Rev Chil Cardiol [online]. 2016, vol.35, n.2, pp.158-162. ISSN 0718-8560.

A 54 year old woman was subjected to a mitral valve repair of a mixomatous degenerative valve with severe mitral insufficiency. Quadrantectomy, mitral chords transfer from P2 to a A2 and implantation of a rigid Edwards 28 ring were performed. Two months later the patient was diagnosed with severe hemolytic anemia. Trans esophageal echocardiography revealed severe mitral insufficiency and at surgery a dehiscence at the base of the qudrantectomy in addition to a non endothelysed sector of the mitral ring were found. A Saint-Jude mitral prosthesis was inserted. At follow up, no recurrence of hemolysis occurred.

Keywords : hemolytic anemia; mitral valve repair; cardiac surgery.
