Abstract

Isolated Tricuspid Valve Infective Endocarditis: A Rare Entity

Tricuspid valve (TV) infective endocarditis (IE) is an uncommon issue. Isolated TVIE accounts for approximately 5% to 36% of all IE. Staphylococcus aureus (60% to 90%) is the most common microbiological pathogen. Most of the patients can be successfully treated with medical therapy however; surgery is preferred for patients in whom medical therapy has failed. Successful surgical treatment should include radical debridement of the infected tissues and the restoration of the valve function. We report the surgical management of a 32-year-old female who was presented with tricuspid valve endocarditis with unknown predisposing factors.
