Abstract

A patient developed severe hemolytic anemia one yr after insertion of a cloth covered aortic valve prosthesis (Starr Edwards No. 2320). The cloth over the 3 struts was disrupted but showed coverage with mostly organized collagen. Hemolysis stopped after replacement with a porcine heterograft. Fabric wear seems to augment the hemolysis in patients with cloth covered artificial valves.
