Infective Endocarditis

Infective Endocarditis


Infective Endocarditis

  • Diagnostic criterion for infective endocarditis includes Rheumatoid factor, Positive blood culture & Positive ECG
  • Infective endocarditis due to pseudomonas is most commonly seen with Intravenous drug abuse of pentazocin
  • Patient with Rapidly progressive malaise, fever, and chills,subungual splinter hemorrhages and a systolic murmur Leading to death due to MI may be suffering from Acute infective endocarditis
  • IE have most friable vegetation
  • Staphylococcus aureus is the most common cause of acute infective endocarditis
  • In a hospital cardiac care unit, there are three patients with different cardiac conditions: a 52 year  old man with dilated cardiomyopathy, an 18 year old girl with mitral valve prolapse, and a 30 year old man with infective endocarditis of the mitral valve. Risk of systemic thromboembolism is the common feature seen
  • Tricuspid valve  is most likely to be involved by infective endocarditis following a septic abortion
  • Salmonella typhi  is least likely to cause infective endocarditis
  • ASD  is the least common cause of infective endocarditis
  • Blood culturefor  staph. aureus is positive in  Infective endocarditis
  • A patient of RHD developed infective endocarditis after dental extraction. Most likely organism causing this is Streptococcus viridans
  • The group of organism HACEK , causing infective endocarditis include Haemophilus, Actionobacillus & Eikenella
  • Infective endocarditis is common in MR & AR
  • Non-sterile vegetations are seen in Infective endocarditis
  • In Infective endocarditis cause due to I.V. drug abuse is Candida is a common cause
  • Staphylococeus aureus is commonest organism for IE in I.V. drug abuse 
  • Myocardial ring abscess, MI & Focal and diffuse glomerulonephritis are complication of infective endocarditis
  • In Infective endocarditis vegetation are friable and easily detachable from the cardiac valves 
  • In infective endocarditis Roth spots, Osiers nodes & Glomerulonephritis are immune mediated
  • Diagnostic criterion for Infective Endocarditis include Positive Echocardiogram, Positive Blood culture & Positive Rheumatoid Factor
  • Infective endocarditis is commonly seen in Small VSD, Tetralogy of fallot & TDA
  • Roth’s spots are seen in Infective endocarditis
  • Myocardial abscess, Vegetations along cusps & Perforation of cusp are the feature of Infective endocarditis
  • Acute Infective Endocarditis with abscess formation is most commonly associated with Staphylococcus
  • 3 culture sets separated by at-least 1 hour over 24 hours  is recommended for culture sampling in Infective Endocarditis
  • Antiboiotic Prophylaxis for infective endocarditis is indicated in Coarctation of aorta
  • Infective endocarditis after tooth extraction is probably due to Streptococcus viridans
