Abstract

In a case of mechanical hemolytic anemia following surgical repair of type A aortic dissection, four-dimensional flow magnetic resonance imaging revealed highly elevated turbulent kinetic energy in a stenotic lesion of a replaced ascending aorta. Our findings suggest that turbulent kinetic energy evaluation enables the detection of the origin of mechanical hemolysis.
