Inflammation of the endocardium.
A serious infection of the endothelium of the heart, usually involving leaflets of the heart valves where destruction of valves or distortion of them by formation of vegetations may lead to serious physiological disturbances and death: also, an inflammation of the endocardial surface (much less common).
a bacterial infection of the heart lining.
The Condition"...Diagnostic tests may include laboratory blood counts and blood cultures, electrocardiogram, X-rays of the heart and lungs, including echocardiogram..."
The Condition"...Back pain, may be severe Heart murmur Weight loss Late stages ... Swelling of the feet, legs and abdomen..."
Inflammation or infection of the inside of the heart, often including the heart valves.
Inflammatory disease of the endocardium, usually as a result of bacterial infection.
Exudative and proliferative inflammatory alterations of the pericardium, the endothelial lining membrane of the cavities of the heart and the connective tissue bed on which it lies.
Redness, and swelling of the lining of the heart and its valves.
An infection of the heart which can occur in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, but is very rare. Bacteria in the bloodstream can stick to the internal surface of the heart or heart valves where they have been roughened by turbulent blood flow.
Heart valve infection.
A condition where the endocardium or inner surface of the heart becomes inflamed or irritated.
infection of the heart valves. Antibiotic prophylaxis is recommended for dental procedures involving roots and gastro-urinary surgery in Marfan Syndrome patients. Back to the top
occurs when a microbe infects the endocardium. Right sided endocarditis involves the tricuspid valve and is frequently caused by intravenous drug use or by central venous lines.
Inflammation of the inside wall of the heart (most commonly the valves).
a rare but serious infection of the lining of the heart or heart valves, which can cause the heart to work less efficiently.
a bacterial infections of the heart lining.
inflammation of the inner membranes of the heart.
Infection of the heart lining and valves.
Bacterial endocarditis occurs when bacteria in the blood stream lands on abnormal heart valves or other damaged heart tissue. (Read about endocarditis in " The Heart and Its Valves")
an infection of the lining of the heart
A condition that affects the lining of the heart's chambers and the heart valves.
Inflammation of the membrane that lines the chambers and valves of the heart, usually caused by an infection of the valve.
Inflammation of the lining of the heart.
The Condition"...If treatment is delayed, heart function deteriorates, resulting in congestive heart failure and possible death..."
