      Endocarditis is the inflammation of the endocardium, often caused by infection [1]. Endocarditis is associated with high morbidity and mortality and remains a serious health problem worldwide. In hospitalized patients, mortality is still near 20% [2]. The incidence of endocarditis in the United States is approximat cases per year [3]. Infective endocarditis is an uncommon, potentially life-threatening illness. Traditionally, antibiotic prophylaxis has been given routinely before dental and other procedures to patients with /_Prevention_of_Endocarditis_The_New_Guidelines.

    Infective endocarditis (IE) is still a serious disease with a high mortality (16 – 20%) overall. It is a localized infection involving the heart valves in the majority of patients, but it is also often a generalized infection associated with the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and numerous septic metastases in various parts of the Introduction. Infective endocarditis (IE) is associated with high morbidity/mortality and is most frequent on the left side of the heart. Right-sided IE (RSIE) is relatively rare, encompassing only 5–10% of IE cases (1,2).The vast majority of RSIE cases involve the tricuspid valve (TV), with pulmonic valve involvement accounting for less than 10% of all right-sided cases ()

    Over the past 30 years, the overall incidence of infective endocarditis (IE) has remained between 2 and 6 per , individuals in the general population per year, 1,2,3,4,5 and associated Infective endocarditis (IE) is a relatively rare disorder with an estimated incidence of 3–10 cases per per year.1 Despite diagnos-tic and therapeutic advances, prognosis remains poor, as reflected by hospital mortal-ity of about 22%, rising to 40% at 5 years Morbidity rates are also high; 50% of patients

Typically, the endocardial structures mostly affected are the heart valves.

The Task Force on the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of Infective Endocarditis of the European Society of Cardiology (Habib et al., ) proposed a classification of infective endocarditis into different categories relating to:site of infection: left side; right side   Prosthetic valve endocarditis.

Prosthetic valve endocarditis accounts for 10–15% of most series with an overall incidence of –%/patient year. 9 Cases may be classified as early or late depending on whether infection arises within one year of surgery or later, and both mechanical valves and bioprostheses appear equally susceptible.

Early infection peaks two months after surgery and is Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia and Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia. Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) account for 25% of all infections in the intensive care unit and are the basis for 50% of all antimicrobials prescribed in the hospital.

HAP is pneumonia that develops in a nonintubated patient more than 48 hours after hospital :// Subacute infective endocarditis (also called subacute bacterial endocarditis) develops gradually and subtly over a period of weeks to several months but also can be life threatening.

Prosthetic valve endocarditis is acute infective endocarditis in a heart valve that has been replaced (prosthetic valve).

Clinical Manifestations of Infective Endocarditis. The clinical manifestations of endocarditis are variable but most closely depend on which organism is involved and whether the patient has left-sided (aortic or mitral) or right-sided (usually tricuspid) disease. :// Despite the advance in medicine in recent decades, infective endocarditis complicated with thromboembolic events remains life-threatening.[1],[2],[3],[9],[10] The greatest risk of embolic complications appears to occur with vegetations >10 mm on the anterior mitral leaflet.[19],[23] Antiplatelet agents are widely used to interfere with the platelet aggregations in patients with myocardial.
