INTRODUCTION: Oritavancin is a novel lipoglycopeptide approved for acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections. The pharmacokinetic profile and convenient one-time dosing make oritavancin an enticing option for other serious Gram-positive infections requiring prolonged treatment courses. Unfortunately, data for using oritavancin in these populations are limited. METHODS: We report ten cases of oritavancin use for invasive Gram-positive infections in our health system, and provide a review of the currently available literature regarding oritavancin therapy for invasive infections...

There is an increasing incidence of infective endocarditis secondary to central venous catheters, which is termed as 'healthcare-associated infective endocarditis'. There is an increased risk of getting infective endocarditis in conditions with malnutrition and also if the tip of the central venous catheter is deep in the right atrium close to the tricuspid valve. We present a case of 31-year-old female who had all these risk factors. She was admitted to the hospital for the work up of the weight loss and was diagnosed with celiac disease...

Infectious endocarditis (IE), a complication that is both cardiac and infectious, occurs frequently and is associated with a heavy burden of morbidity and mortality in chronic hemodialysis patients (CHD). About 2-6% of chronic hemodialysis patients develop IE and the incidence is 50-60 times higher among CHD patients than in the general population. The left heart is the most frequent location of IE in CHD and the different published series report a prevalence of left valve involvement varying from 80% to 100%...

OBJECTIVES: Totally endoscopic minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (MIMVS) is technically demanding and often performed with robotic assistance. We hypothesized that three-port video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) would facilitate endoscopic MIMVS and evaluated its feasibility and safety. METHODS: From October 2010 to June 2016, we performed first-time MIMVS in 250 consecutive patients (122 male), with median age of 65 years (54-73 years, 25-75 percentile)...

Background and aim of the study: Tricuspid valve (TV) infective endocarditis (TVIE) is uncommon and is mainly cured with medical treatment. When surgery is indicated, the appropriate surgical option remains to be determined. The study aim was to determine whether valve reconstruction using autologous pericardium is a safe and efficacious procedure to treat TVIE. Methods: A retrospective review was conducted of patients who underwent surgery for acute isolated TVIE with periannular involvement. Radical debridement was performed to provide a safe ground for pericardium implantation...

Tricuspid stenosis (TS) is an uncommon complication of ventricular pacemaker implantation. Mechanisms described by the literature are ventricular inflow obstruction by tricuspid vegetations (endocarditis) or multiple pacemaker leads and fibrosis secondary to mechanical trauma, accounting for perforation or laceration of the TV leaflets, or adherence between redundant loops and valve tissue. We present the case of iatrogenic tricuspid stenosis, observed in a 77-year-old man. Extrinsic tricuspid valve stenosis was detected by transthoracic echocardiography...

OBJECTIVES: Coexisting aortic root and mitral valve pathology is increasingly recognized among patients undergoing surgery. We characterized the pathology and surgical outcomes of patients with combined aortic root and mitral disease. METHODS: From 1987 to 2016, 118 patients (age 52.40 ± 17.71 years) underwent concomitant aortic root and mitral procedures (excluding aortic stenosis, endocarditis, and reoperations). Aortic root pathologies included degenerative aneurysm (94%) and aortic dissection (6%)...

Infective endocarditis of the tricuspid valve (TVE) occurs predominantly in selected groups of patients including intravenous drug users (IVDUs). The most often cultured pathogen in IVDUs is Staphylococcus aureus. Eikenella corrodens, normally existing as a commensal in the mouth and the upper respiratory tract, is identified as an etiologic pathogen of endocarditis very rarely. The authors describe a case of a 27-year-old male with a past history of staphylococcal TVE readmitted to hospital after 5 months due to progression of right-sided heart failure...

Isolated unilateral abducens nerve palsy is usually due to ischemia, trauma or neoplasm. Dorello's canal is the space between the petrous apex and superolateral portion of the clivus, bound superiorly by Gruber's ligament. The abducens nerve travels with inferior petrosal sinus (IPS) though the Dorello's canal before entering the cavernous sinus. A 31-year-old man presented with neck pain, and binocular horizontal diplopia, worse looking towards left and at distance. He had a history of intravenous drug abuse but no history of hypertension or diabetes...

BACKGROUND: Tricuspid valve infective endocarditis (TVIE) causes septic pulmonary embolism (PE). However, the impact of vegetation size on PE is not fully elucidated. METHODS: In 26 consecutive patients with definite TVIE according to Duke criteria, we tested clinical, microbiological, and echocardiographic data including real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (3DTEE) as potential predictors of PE. 3DTEE measurement of maximum length of vegetation (MLV) was obtained with Advanced QLAB Quantification Software by cropping the 3D volume with the appropriate 2D plane to obtain the largest value...

Rupture of aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva into the right atrium mimicking tricuspid valve endocarditis is a rare presentation. We review a case of spontaneous rupture of aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva into the right atrium presenting as a murmur. Transthoracic echocardiogram showed a mobile mass that appeared to be attached to the tricuspid valve leaflet with moderate tricuspid regurgitation suggestive of tricuspid valve endocarditis. The diagnosis was confirmed as spontaneous rupture of noncoronary sinus in to the right atrium by transesophageal echocardiogram...

Right-ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) endocarditis is a very rare presentation of right-sided infective endocarditis (RSIE) by brucellosis. RSIE occurs most commonly in immune-suppressed cases and illicit drug abuser. The patients with RSIE and an incompetent immune system usually have a prosthetic foreign body in blood circulation such as catheter, pacemakers, or central venous lines and may be accompanied with tricuspid or pulmonary valve dysfunction. The most common site for RSIE is the tricuspid valve...

INTRODUCTION: The treatment of complex prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) with aortic root abscess remains a surgical challenge. Several studies support the use of biological tissues to minimize the risk of recurrent infection. We present our initial surgical experience with the use of an aortic xenograft conduit for aortic valve and root replacement. METHODS: Between October 2013 and August 2015, 15 xenograft bioconduits were implanted for complex PVE with abscess (13...

Surgical intervention for severe tricuspid regurgitation secondary to remote infective endocarditis has been infrequent, especially in patients also infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). We describe the case of a 62-year-old HIV-positive man, with a 24-year history of endocarditis caused by intravenous heroin use, who presented with severe tricuspid regurgitation. The patient was initially asymptomatic, was taking antiretroviral medications, and had a satisfactory CD4 count and an undetectable viral load, so we decided to manage the regurgitation conservatively...

Quadricuspid aortic valve (QAV) is a rare congenital heart disease. The functional status of QAV is predominantly a pure aortic regurgitation. Clinical manifestations of patients with a QAV depend on the functional status of the QAV and the associated disorders. Significant valvular regurgitation and (or) stenosis is often present with subsequent operation performed at the fifth to sixth decade of life. The functional status of QAV is predominantly regurgitant; whereas pure stenotic QAV can be as few as in only 0...

Endocarditis associated with dialysis catheter is a disease that must be suspected in every patient with hemodialysis who develops fever. Multiple valve disease is a severe complication of endocarditis that needs to be managed in a different way. There is very limited data for treatment and every case must be considered individually. We present a patient with this complication and describe the medical treatment and surgical management. We report the case of a 15-year-old patient with acute renal failure that develops trivalvular endocarditis after the hemodialysis catheter was placed, with multiple positive blood culture for Staphylococcus aureus...
