Hemolytic anemia following mitral valve surgery

, : Hemolytic anemia following mitral valve surgery. Annales de Cardiologie et D'angeiologie 57(5): 299-302

Mitral valvuloplasty which is currently the most popular surgical procedure in MVD may be complicated mostly by restenosis or valvular leakage. Hemolysis occurs less frequently and by far less commonly than in prosthetic valves but deserves to be known. Delay between valvuloplasty and hemolytic anemia occurrence may vary within a wide range (from some weeks to several years as in the case we report here). A careful follow-up of the patients who undergo MV repair will help to identify this complication which is related not to the size of the regurgitation flow but to the velocity of the jet. Surgery is the unique treatment of this kind of anemia.

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is caused by heterozygous mutations in either PKD1 or PKD2, genes that encode polycystin-1 and polycystin-2, respectively(1). We show here that tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), an infla...

Bacterial VKOR appears to take the place of the...
