This paper is concerned with the study of a class of closed linear operators densely defined on a Hilbert space H and called B-Fredholm operators. We characterize a B-Fredholm operator as the direct sum of a Fredholm closed operator and a bounded nilpotent operator. The notion of an index of a B-Fredholm operator is introduced and a characterization of B-Fredholm operators with index 0 is given in terms of the sum of a Drazin closed operator and a finite-rank operator. We analyse the properties
