Two hundred eleven episodes of native valve active infective endocarditis treated at the Massachusetts General Hospital between 1975 and 1983 were reviewed. The aortic (36%) and mitral (33%) valves were most frequently involved, but in 21% of the cases the site of infection could not be localized. Streptococcal (50%) and staphylococcal (35%) species were the most frequently isolated pathogens. New or changing ("unstable") conduction abnormalities developed in 9% of the patients, while an… CONTINUE READING
