Abstract: For appropriate values of $H$, we obtain an area estimate for a complete non-compact $H$-surface of finite topology and finite area, embedded in a 3-manifold of negative curvature. Moreover, in the case of equality and under additional assumptions, we prove that a neighborhood of the mean convex side of the surface must be isometric to a hyperbolic Fuchsian manifold. Also, we provide a counterexample showing that, in the case of minimal surfaces, equality in the area estimate does not necessarily imply a local rigidity result for the ambient manifold.
