|Title:||Hemolysis after percutaneous paravalvular leak repair||Authors:||De Bruyn, Astrid
|Issue Date:||2016||Publisher:||TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD||Source:||ACTA CLINICA BELGICA, 71(5), p. 316-318||Abstract:||Paravalvular leak is a common complication after surgical mitral valve replacement. Surgically implanted prosthetic valves are complicated with paravalvular leaks in 17%.(1) Surgical closure of paravalvular leaks is the most common therapy for these defects. Percutaneous closure is an alternative to repeat surgery for a selected high-risk population. We present a case of a patient who developed severe haemolytic anaemia and secondary renal failure after partially successful percutaneous closure of paravalvular leakage of a prosthetic mitral valve. The assumption is that the combination of a metallic foreign body and high shear stress caused haemolysis by damaging red blood cells.||Notes:||[De Bruyn, Astrid] Univ Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.
