The purpose of this narrative review and update is to summarize the current knowledge and provide recent advances on the neurologic complications of infective endocarditis.
This article was published in the following journal.

A variety of microorganisms can cause infective endocarditis (IE), Staphylococci and Streptococci accounting for the majority of cases. Streptococci are a common cause of community-acquired IE but few...
Infective endocarditis following a Mitraclip procedure might be an under-recognized complication. We describe the case of infective endocarditis by Bartonella henselae as a late complication in a pati...
The management of endocarditis requires aggressive and prolonged antimicrobial treatment. We evaluated the in vitro activity of dalbavancin against bacteria from patients with infective endocarditis.
Correction to: Infective Endocarditis in Adults: Diagnosis, Antimicrobial Therapy, and Management of Complications: A Scientific Statement for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association.
Infective endocarditis after transcatheter aortic valve implantation is a life-threating complication, resulting in high in-hospital and one-year mortality. With the ongoing evolution of transcatheter...
The diagnosis of infective endocarditis is based on the results of blood culture and findings on transeosophageal echocardiography. Cardiac computarized tomography is a new modality, mainl...
The purpose is to exam prospective if simple clinical information in combination with a normal s-procalcitonin are sufficient for exclusion of infective endocarditis (IE).
This is an analysis of the outcomes of patients having undergone surgical intervention for infective endocarditis.
The purpose is to evaluate autoantibodies in infective endocarditis patients before, at the beginning of treatment, and after the end of the treatment, and to correlate the autoantibodies ...
Infective endocarditis is a microbial infection of the endocardial surface of the heart.
ENDOCARDIUM infection that is usually caused by STREPTOCOCCUS. Subacute infective endocarditis evolves over weeks and months with modest toxicity and rare metastatic infection.
Formation of a non-infectious THROMBUS, referred to as vegetation, on previously undamaged ENDOCARDIUM. It usually occurs as a complication of connective-tissue diseases and cancers because of the associated hypercoagulable state (see THROMBOPHILIA).
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Inflammation of the inner lining of the heart (ENDOCARDIUM), the continuous membrane lining the four chambers and HEART VALVES. It is often caused by microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and rickettsiae. Left untreated, endocarditis can damage heart valves and become life-threatening.
Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of the neurological system, processes or phenomena; includes the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.
