Native aortic valve thrombosis is an extremely rare condition, the causes of which include previous aortic valve diseases, endocarditis, valvular injury by a catheter intervention and an underlying hypercoagulative state. Its diagnosis is important for preventing life-threatening embolic complications. Here, we report a case of native aortic valve thrombosis and recurrent systemic embolism in a patient with protein S deficiency, a disorder associated with a hypercoagulative state.

A 79-year-old man with history of aortic stenosis, status post bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement, episodes of bacteremia, and endocarditis presented to hospital with fever. Clinical assessment led to suspicion of possible endocarditis. Initial interpretation of transesophageal echocardiogram was inconclusive without vegetation in mitral/aortic valve. An In-leukocyte scan demonstrated increased uptake in the area of aortic valve, suggestive of infection. Further review of the transesophageal echocardiogram showed signs of annular abscess...

A professional skydiver underwent aortic valve and ascending aorta replacement complicated by infective endocarditis with root abscess and pacemaker implantation. He then enrolled in the Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program as part of its specificity of testing and exercise training facility. He performed specific skydiving cardiovascular and muscular strength tests at the beginning and the end of the CR program. His pacemaker was interrogated to ascertain any arrhythmias or lead displacement over the course of the CR program...

BACKGROUND: Infective endocarditis (IE) caused by anaerobic bacteria is a rare and poorly characterized disease. Most data reported in the literature are from case reports [1-3]. Therefore, we assessed the situation of anaerobic IE (AIE) in Spain using the database of the Spanish Collaboration on Endocarditis (GAMES). METHODS: We performed a prospective study from 2008 to 2016 in 26 Spanish centers. We included 2491 consecutive cases of definite IE (Duke criteria)...

OBJECTIVE: Procalcytonin is a useful marker of bacterial infections. Several studies have reported elevated serum levels of PCT in patients with infective endocarditis (IE) and/or other infections sustained by cocci. We report a rare case of IE attributed to Streptococcus viridans in whom levels of PCT were normal. CASE REPORT: A 67 years-old male was admitted to the Emergency Department for a 25-day history of recurring night fever. Upon admission, patient underwent blood test, including PCT, showing normal levels, except for a slight increased creatinine concentration (1...

Although aortic root replacement using a composite graft including the Bentall operation is the treatment of choice for a diseased aortic valve and root dilatation, composite graft endocarditis can occur as a life-threatening complication with a high mortality rate. When aortic pseudoaneurysm occurs due to composite graft endocarditis, it usually indicates that saccular bulging of the surrounding tissue of the composite graft is present. Furthermore, another sign and a clue of the diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm is the collapse of the composite graft due to the outer compression pressure of the leaking blood flow...

Brucella endocarditis is a rare but a severe complication of brucellosis, observed in less than 2% of cases. It is the main cause responsible for up to 80% of deaths in brucellosis. Herein, we present a case of brucella endocarditis that developed on a native aortic valve, but presented to us with fever for several months and acute neurological symptoms. This case report signifies the importance of considering brucella endocarditis as one of the differentials in patients presenting with Pyrexia of Unknown Origin (PUO) and Central Nervous System (CNS) manifestations...

REVIEW
Sossio Perrotta, Salvatore Lentini
Aortic annular erosion and abscess are serious complications of prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis and can be treated with aortic valve translocation and left ventricle outflow tract reconstruction. These two surgical techniques seem to have similar early postoperative outcomes, and their use can be considered an option after the failure of conventional surgical methods.

Introduction.Listeria monocytogenes is an uncommon cause of prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE). Recommended antimicrobial therapy typically includes intravenous β-lactams with or without synergistic aminoglycosides. In vitro studies have previously identified antagonism when rifampicin has been used in combination with β-lactams. However, in vivo data of rifampicin use are limited despite its enhanced anti-biofilm activity. Case presentation. A 63-year-old male presented with fever and back pain. L. monocytogenes bacteraemia and bioprosthetic aortic valve endocarditis was confirmed, along with spinal discitis and osteomyelitis...

A 72-year-old woman presented with sepsis and lower limb ischaemia. Transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) for suspected endocarditis revealed no cardiac pathology or source of emboli but a large thrombus-like mass was noted in a normal size descending aorta (Fig. 1A, Video 1). Repeat TOE after two weeks of anticoagulation showed two new masses and no change in the size of the original one (Fig. 1B). The patient died following bilateral leg amputation. There was no PM to provide pathology confirmation but the most likely diagnosis was of a thrombus, possibly infected...
