635 Possible Causes for Subacute Bacterial Endocarditis

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    SBE prophylaxis: Children with HCM are at increased risk for subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE).[mottchildren.org]

  • Aortic Valve Disorder

    Children with bicuspid valve are at increased risk for subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE). This is an infection of the heart caused by bacteria in the blood stream.[mottchildren.org]

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus

    Subacute bacterial endocarditis has been reported in both symptomatic and “silent” PDAs.[jabfm.org] Children with patent ductus arteriosus are also at increased risk for subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE).[mottchildren.org] Based on most recent recommendations for subacute bacterial endocarditis prophylaxis, 5 no prophylaxis was recommended.[jabfm.org]

  • Aortic Stenosis with Bicuspid Valve

    Subacute bacterial endocarditis. Dilatation of the root of the aorta (may also lead to a leaking valve).[patient.info] Children with bicuspid valve are at increased risk for subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE). This is an infection of the heart caused by bacteria in the blood stream.[chd-uk.co.uk]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Subacute bacterial endocarditis. Dilatation of the root of the aorta (may also lead to a leaking valve).[patient.info]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE) is an infection of the heart involving damaged valves or endothelium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Aneurysm of the mitral valve in subacute bacterial endocarditis.

  • Atrial Septal Defect

    Atrial septal defect ( ASD ) is a congenital heart defect in which blood flows between the atria (upper chambers) of the heart. Some flow is a normal condition both pre-birth and immediately post-birth via the foramen ovale, however when this does not naturally close after birth it is referred to as a patent[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Streptococcus Viridans

    In the pathogenesis of subacute bacterial endocarditis these organisms are transported by way of the blood stream to reach valves damaged by rheumatic heart disease or certain[nejm.org] endocarditis are caused by Streptococcus viridans .[nejm.org] Teeth, Streptococcus Viridans, and Subacute Bacterial Endocarditis Articles Br Med J 1956 ; 2 doi: (Published 29 December 1956) Cite this as: Br Med J 1956;2:1501 Article[bmj.com]

  • Heart Valve Disease

    BACKGROUND: Over the last 25 years, cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) has emerged as an alternative to echocardiography for assessment of valvular heart disease (VHD). Although echo remains the first-line imaging modality for the assessment of patients with VHD, CMR can now provide a comprehensive[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    Children with bicuspid valve are at increased risk for subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE). This is an infection of the heart caused by bacteria in the blood stream.[mottchildren.org] The “incubation period” of subacute bacterial endocarditis. Yale J Biol Med. 1977 ; 50 : 49–58.
