Endocarditis in the elderly

Endocarditis is an inflammatory disease caused by the direct invasion of endocardium by pathogenic microorganisms. The valve is the most frequently involved site, but the infection can occur in the site of ventricular septal defect, tendon and endocardium. The infection of arteriovenous fistula, arterial fistula (such as patent ductus arteriosus) or aortic stenosis belongs to endarteritis, but the clinical and pathological characteristics are similar to infective endocarditis.
