  • Acute bioprosthesis failure is an uncommon event that may require urgent surgery. This is even less frequent when it is not associated to endocarditis, thombus formation or structural valve deterioration. We describe for the first time an acute complete detachment of the three leaflets of a Trifecta tissue valve six years after the implantation, in a patient who suddenly suffered a strong chest p…
  • Staphylococcus lugdunensis: Review of Epidemiology, Complications, and Treatment. [Review]

  • Staphylococcus lugdunensis is a species of coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) that induces a variety of infectious diseases, including skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI), infective endocarditis (IE), and bone and PJI. This review article underscores the important points in the literature about S. lugdunensis infections, including its epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as speci…
  • Infective Endocarditis: Preliminary Results of a Cohort Study in the Southern Italian Population. [Journal Article]
    Cureus. 2020 May 28; 12(5):e8338.Serra N, Colomba C, … Sergi C
  • Background Infective endocarditis (IE) is an uncommon disease with an involved interplay of clinical and surgical team management. We aimed to define diagnosis parameters and delineate in-hospital management in patients with IE admitted in a tertiary hospital of Southern Italian. Materials and methods Fifty-six consecutive patients (42 males, 14 females; age range: 34-85 years) admitted for IE in…

  • Infective endocarditis is a microbial infection of the endocardium and can easily affect heart valve.Its characteristic lesion is vegetation formation,and the shedding of vegetation results in arterial embolism and ischemic necrosis of corresponding tissues and organs.A case of infective endocarditis with multiple extracardiac complications was described in this article.The characteristic ultraso…
  • Modified Danielson Technique for Prosthetic Aortic Valve Endocarditis and Aortoventricular Discontinuity. [Journal Article]
    Tex Heart Inst J. 2020 Apr 01; 47(2):117-120.Filippone G, Calia C, … Argano V
  • Endocarditis is a devastating complication of prosthetic aortic valve replacement. The infective process can destroy aortic annulus tissue, making conventional surgical valve replacement difficult or impossible and causing aortoventricular discontinuity. Several treatment techniques have been proposed. One of these, the Danielson technique, involves translocating the aortic valve to the native as…
  • Unusual non-valvular left ventricular endocarditis presenting as multiple brain embolism. [Journal Article]
    Acta Clin Belg. 2020 Jun 30 [Online ahead of print]Redzek A, Preveden A, … Velicki L
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intracardiac masses can cause serious and potentially fatal complications that often present with dramatic clinical symptoms. Despite the comprehensive clinical, laboratory, and imaging investigations, intracardiac masses can be hard to distinguish until the definite microscopic analysis. However, with the right approach and multidisciplinary collaboration, they can be successfully managed.
  • Sex differences in bicuspid aortic valve disease. [Review]
    Prog Cardiovasc Dis. 2020 Jun 26 [Online ahead of print]Kong WKF, Bax JJ, … Delgado V
  • Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV), the most frequent congenital heart disease, is characterized by an uneven distribution between sexes. BAV is three to four times more frequent in men than in women which could be associated with a reduced dosage of X chromosome genes. In addition, BAV has a multifactorial inheritance, low penetrance and variable phenotypes that may lead to different form of valve dege…
