OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess the risk of systemic embolization in patients with left-sided infective endocarditis, once adequate antibiotic treatment had been initiated, on the basis of prospective clinical follow-up. BACKGROUND As one of the complications of infective endocarditis, embolization has a great impact on prognosis. Prediction of an individual patient's risk of embolization is very difficult. METHODS We studied 217 episodes of left-sided endocarditis that were… CONTINUE READING
