Abstract

Hemolysis is commonly seen in patients with mechanical heart valves and is secondary to destruction of red blood cells by mechanical action of artificial valve. It is very unusual after repair of native heart valve. Here we present a case of hemolytic anemia in association with mitral valve repair.
