Pseudomonas aeruginosa infective endocarditis in patients who do not use intravenous drugs: Our experience

Suresh Kumar Behera and Rajesh Kumar Lenka
Aim and objectives: Infective endocarditis (IE) because of Pseudomonas aeruginosa is uncommon and represents just about 3% of all patients with this malady. Most contaminations are related with the utilization of intravenous medications. Patients with P. aeruginosa-related IE who don't utilize intravenous drugs are incredibly uncommon. We did an audit of the writing to recognize the nature what's more, hazard elements of this malady.
Methods: Patients with IE reported between 1993 and 2013 were reviewed by searching the Medline database using the keywords “endocarditis” and “Pseudomonas aeruginosa”. All of the patients included met the definition of the modified Duke criteria.
Results: Twenty-seven patients in 22 reports were looked into. IE connected with social insurance represented 20 patients (74%). The mean age of the patients was 53.4 years and there was a transcendence of men (81.5%). Local valve endocarditis was found in 20 (74.1%) patients. Medical procedure for contamination control was performed in 15 (55.6%) patients and the death rate in patients who experienced medical procedure was 33.3% (five patients). A backslide of IE after sufficient treatment was found in nine (33.3%) patients. The death rate in each of the 27 patients was 28.6% (2/7) for those with network obtained IE and 40% (8/20) for those with IE connected with medicinal services. Univariate examination demonstrated a higher death rate in patients matured >60 years and in those whose wellspring of endocarditis was identified with a prosthetic gadget.
Conclusion: P. aeruginosa endocarditis has substantial morbidity and mortality. It is characterized by easy relapse and is highly associated with prosthetic devices.
