Molecular technology in context: a current review of diagnosis and management of infective endocarditis

, : Molecular technology in context: a current review of diagnosis and management of infective endocarditis. Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases 50(3): 181-197

Infective endocarditis is an evolving disease that presents as a great a problem to physicians, cardiologists, microbiologists, and cardiac surgeons in both the developed and developing world now as at any time over the past 3 decades. This article provides the reader with an up-to-date review of epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, presentation, diagnosis, and treatment. A major area of ongoing work is an approach to the culture-negative patient resulting in expanding diagnostic techniques.
