To characterize outcomes after mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) from infective endocarditis.
Stroke is a frequent complication of infective endocarditis, especially infection involving left-sided valves. Management of anticoagulation in left-sided infective endocarditis is controversial as it...
Every year stroke affects 230 per 100,000 population in the United Kingdom and accounts for 11% of all deaths (1). Infective endocarditis (IE) has an incidence of 3-9 per 100,000 in developed countrie...
Bartonella endocarditis can be a very elusive diagnosis. The clinical manifestations can vary and, at times, include multiorgan involvement. This case report describes two patients presenting with mul...
The infectious endocarditis is a grave infection the incidence of which is at present esteemed at 30-100 episodes by million inhabitants a year. This infection is marked with a heavy morb...
The purpose of the EARLY study is to evaluate the efficacy and effectiveness of early surgery in patients with Infective Endocarditis (IE).
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 diagnosis of infectious endocarditis is not always easy and is based on several clinical and imaging arguments. Positron Emission Tomography - Computed Tomography (PET-CT) has been val...
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).
An infection caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae that is almost wholly restricted to persons who in their occupation handle infected fish, shellfish, poultry, or meat. Three forms of this condition exist: a mild localized form manifested by local swelling and redness of the skin; a diffuse form that might present with fever; and a rare systemic form associated with endocarditis.
Infections with bacteria of the genus ERYSIPELOTHRIX.
A genus of gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that has a tendency to form long filaments. Its organisms are widely distributed in nature and are found in MAMMALS; BIRDS; and FISHES. Erysipelothrix may appear gram-negative because they decolorize easily.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
A heterogeneous group of immunocompetent cells that mediate the cellular immune response by processing and presenting antigens to the T-cells. Traditional antigen-presenting cells include MACROPHAGES; DENDRITIC CELLS; LANGERHANS CELLS; and B-LYMPHOCYTES. FOLLICULAR DENDRITIC CELLS are not traditional antigen-presenting cells, but because they hold antigen on their cell surface in the form of IMMUNE COMPLEXES for B-cell recognition they are considered so by some authors.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
