114 Possible Causes for Bacterial Endocarditis, Thickening of the Mitral Valve Leaflets

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE) is an infection of the heart involving damaged valves or endothelium.[] Two groups of patients were compared: those with thickening of the mitral-valve leaflets and redundancy (designated the classic form; n 319) and those without leaflet thickening[] The proband presented with infective mastoiditis, bacterial endocarditis, and a supraventricular tachycardia.[]

  • Mitral Valve Stenosis

    There are only 15 reported cases in the literature of mitral prosthetic valve bacterial endocarditis causing stenosis by obstruction.[] Mitral stenosis is characterized by thickening and immobility of the mitral valve leaflets.[] In this way it is possible to prevent bacteremia and subacute bacterial endocarditis.[]

  • Mitral Valve Insufficiency

    The cause of MVI was degenerative in 146 patients (90%) and bacterial endocarditis in 16 patients (10%).[] Abstract Mitral valve insufficiency in rheumatic heart disease is often due to retracted posterior chordae and posterior leaflet thickening.[] Bacterial endocarditis of the mitral valve treated by excision and replacement. Ann Surg 1967; 166 :854-7 [ PMC free article ] [ PubMed ] 100.[]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    SBE prophylaxis: Children with HCM are at increased risk for subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE).[] […] of an anomalous papillary muscle [arrow] onto the ventricular surface of the anterior mitral leaflet).[] The mitral valve leaflets often appear enlarged relative to the cavity of the left ventricle.[]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    Bacterial endocarditis -- Bacterial endocarditis is a bacterial infection that can affect the valves of the heart causing deformity and damage to the leaflets of the valve[] This results in generalized inflammation in the heart, this manifests in the mitral valve as vegetations, and thickening or fusion of the leaflets, leading to a severely compromised[] Fever (with bacterial endocarditis). Rapid weight gain.[]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Systemic necrotizing vasculitis involving cerebral blood vessels is described in a 30-year-old man with rheumatic heart disease and subacute bacterial endocarditis.[] Echocardiography evaluation showed thickened aortic and mitral valve leaflets with mild to moderate degree of mitral regurgitation.[] Subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE) was invariably a fatal disease in the pre-penicillin era.[]

  • Subacute Bacterial Endocarditis

    endocarditis, lenta Subacute bacterial endocarditis SBE sepsis lenta edit English subacute bacterial endocarditis Human disease Endocarditis lenta SBE - Subacute bacterial[] Patients most at risk of developing bacterial endocarditis include those who have: Acquired valve disease (for example, rheumatic heart disease) including mitral valve prolapse[] Subacute bacterial endocarditis (also called endocarditis lenta) is a type of endocarditis (more specifically, infective endocarditis).[]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    Occasionally aortic insufficiency may be a result of bacterial endocarditis, dilatation of the aortic valve ring, hypertension and aortic arteriosclerosis, dissecting aortic[] leaflets and in the mitral subvalvular apparatus, causing thickening, retraction, and stiffening of valves and resulting in incomplete leaflet coaptation and valve regurgitation[] License: CC BY-SA 3.0 Definition of Aortic Insufficiency A frequent cause of aortic valve insufficiency is bacterial endocarditis but even congenital diseases or congenital[]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    7 and bacterial endocarditis is considered likely.[] […] history of endocarditis history of illegal drug use mitral valve prolapse and valve regurgitation (leaking) and/or thickened valve leaflets The risk of infective endocarditis[] Bacterial endocarditis Bacterial endocarditis (infection of heart valve) Endocarditis, bacterial Fungal endocarditis Mycotic aneurysm Mycotic aneurysm due to bacterial endocarditis[]

  • Endocarditis

    Renal embolism and infarction occur in patients with bacterial endocarditis.[] Patients most at risk of developing bacterial endocarditis include those who have: Acquired valve disease (for example, rheumatic heart disease) including mitral valve prolapse[] Mitral valve prolapse without regurgitation or unusually thickened valve leaflets. A coronary artery stent. What are the symptoms?[]
