In conclusion, Bartonella infection of a natural reservoir appears to lead to cardiac valve
papillary fibroelastoma: surgical excision for revealed or potential embolisation.
All 11 had diffuse fibrous thickening of the mitral leaflets, and all but one had diffuse anatomic lesions of at least two other cardiac valves
regurgitation rates were elevated with current use of pergolide and cabergoline, but not with current use of any other dopamine agonist.
1-15) The low incidence of infection on the pulmonic valve compared with other cardiac valves
may relate to differences in hemodynamic pressures across the valves, oxygen saturation, underlying congenital or acquired valvular abnormalities, and the endothelial lining and relative vascularity of the valves.
Drago Cerchiari, Sorin's CEO, declared: "This production relocation will result in a strategic reinforcement of the overall Cardiac Valves
area, which will benefit from the world's greatest concentration of medical technology resources and product specific knowhow.
in patients with Q fever endocarditis: microbiological, molecular, and histologic studies.
It may also involve the interventricular and interatrial septa, cardiac valves
, coronary arteries, and conduction system (2).
The group hopes to devise instructions for growing specific body parts by turning on and off certain genes and to use these genetic blueprints to direct embryonic stem cells to grow fully-formed cardiac valves
, the insulin-producing "islet cells" of the pancreas, and "tooth germs," which could grow into complete teeth once implanted in the mouth.
Patients who should receive antibiotics prior to dental procedures are those with prosthetic cardiac valves
or previous episodes of infective endocarditis, and heart transplant patients with abnormal cardiac valves
Since 1960, over 1 million dysfunctioning native cardiac valves
have been replaced with a mechanical prosthesis or a bioprosthesis (tissue valve).
Now, a novel coating may offer a new way to fend off microbial buildup on catheters, artificial hips, and replacement cardiac valves
The discoveries by more than one independent researcher of Nanobacteria and/or Nanobacteria-like structures in calcified human arteries and cardiac valves

burnetii-infected cardiac valves
can appear normal on visual inspection, as demonstrated in the cases presented here, and on histologic evaluation (11).
