Providing a thorough examination of this disease that causes valvular infection, Infective Endocarditis covers all aspects from the pre-antibiotic era to the current problems of prosthetic valve endocarditis, endocarditis associated with intravenous drug abusers, and the treatment of multiply resistant organisms. The first chapters cover the history of infective endocarditis, from the 15th-Century to the advent of modern antibiotic and surgical therapy for valvular infection. Chapters on epidemiology, microbiology, pathogenesis, pathophysiology, and pathology serve as grounding for the clinical aspects of the disease. Key chapters on clinical correlations, clinical manifestations, diagnosis (including a complete discussion of the use of echocardiograpy), and medical and surgical treatment of endocarditis provide a comprehensive approach to patient care.
