Anticoagulation in Cardiobacterium hominis Prosthetic Valve Endocarditis in a Patient with Hypercoagulability: A Clinical Dilemma.

Conn Med 2017 Feb;81(2):99-101

Cardiobacterium hominis is an uncommon cause of prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) and often presents insidiously. In comparison, prosthetic valve thrombosis (PVT) is a rare, but life-threatening condition that commonly occurs due to inadequate anticoagulation. Anticoagulation is relatively contraindicated in patients with endocarditis as it may prove to be lethal due to increased risk of cerebral hemorrhage. Read More
