The prosthetic endocarditis
The prosthetic endocarditis (valve endocarditisprosthesis) - one of the most serious infectious diseases. It may occur in patients previously suffered Valve infektsionnys endocarditis, and in patients operated for vice infectious origin. There are early (up to 2 months after surgery) and late (more than 2 months) prosthetic endocarditis. Early prosthetic endocarditis is most often the result of either not finished the cure of infection in cases of surgery for active infective endocarditis, or infection of the result of the patient during or after the coming into heart surgery possible. Unfortunately, there is always a small risk of such infections during cardiac surgery patient treatment, so to speak, the reverse side of the coin. Late prosthetic endocarditis in most cases, is the result of a new infection. The end result is a partial prosthetic endocarditis (fistula) or complete (gap) rejection of the prosthesis. Treatment of early and late prosthetic endocarditis first ever medication: antibiotics are appointed. If there is no effect, especially in cases of early prosthetic endocarditis, you may need to re-cardiac surgery.
Infective endocarditis - a terrible disease. In order to minimize the risk of developing infective endocarditis, all patients with heart valve defects, including with mitral valve prolapse, as well as the valve prosthesis, you must adhere to the following rules: - before and shortly after the completion of any intervention, which resulted in the bloodstream infection can get (dental, gynecological and other procedures.) should take antibiotics prophylactically. The choice of antibiotic depends on the variety of manipulation and must be agreed with the doctor performing it.
Endocarditis is not infectious nature
As a result of various serious diseases(Cancer, etc.), The body produces special substances which are subsequently deposited on the inner shell of the heart (the endocardium) forming sterile (communicable) vegetation. These formations can does not manifest itself, in rare cases, can be observed embolic fragments of vegetations with the development of heart attacks internal organs. Diagnosis of non-infectious endocarditis is no different from the diagnosis of infective endocarditis. Treatment of non-infectious endocarditis is caused in treating his illness as well as the appointment of anticoagulant drugs to remove vegetation.
