METHODS Ninety-one consecutive patients (52 males, 39 females, mean age 55.6 years) underwent surgery between 1973 and 1997 for endocarditis of isolated mitral (n = 65, 71%), mitral and aortic (n = 25, 28%) and mitral, aortic and tricuspid valves (n = 1, 1%). Native valve endocarditis (NVE) was present… CONTINUE READING
