Induction of experimental endocarditis by continuous low-grade bacteremia mimicking spontaneous bacteremia in humans.


Transient high-grade bacteremia following invasive procedures carries a risk of infective endocarditis (IE). This is supported by experimental endocarditis. On the other hand, case-control studies showed that IE could be caused by cumulative exposure to low-grade bacteremia occurring during daily activities. However, no experimental demonstration of this… (More)
