Mechanical hemolytic anemia, although there is a well-known complication of mechanical valve replacement is reported to be rare after mitral valve repair. In this article, hemolytic anemia after mitral ring annuloplasty, undetectable improvement after repeated blood transfusions and tried to offer patients who underwent mechanical valve replacement.
