CUSTODIO LOPEZ, Jesús Jacinto; RAMIREZ LOPEZ, Milvio; GUERRERO VARGAS, Rafael  and  ARAUCO IBARRA, Víctor. Acute Hemoylisis post implant of Rashklind umbrella in patent ductus arteriousus: surgical treatment. Rev Med Hered [online]. 1998, vol.9, n.3, pp.123-126. ISSN 1018-130X.

We report a case of an acute mechanical haemolisis in a woman of 50 years old that ocurred after a percutaneous closure of a patent ductus arteriosus by a Rashkind double umbrella prosthesis.Surgical removal of the device using Cardiopulmonary bypass and ligation of the duct were required before haemolisis was abolished. (Rev Med Hered 1998; 9:123-127).

Keywords : Patent ductus arteriosus; haemolisis; Rashkind umbrella.
