Abstract

Background: Endocarditis of the triscuspid value is a rare form of valvular endocarditis and occurs mainly in patients with special risk factors. Case Report: The three case reports demonstrate 3 young patients (age 30 to 37 years, 2 female and 1 male) with a typical history of those risk factors. The two women were intravenous drug addicts and one of them had suffered already an episode of tricuspid value endocarditis several years ago. The man developed his infection after implantation of a pacemaker. In all of the three patients the endocarditis was due to infection with staphylococci: twice staphylococcus epidermidis and once staphylococcus aureus. In two of the three patients the endocarditis could not be cured by intravenous antibiotics alone and these partients had to undergo cardiac valvular surgery. All patients left the hospital after several weeks ago without signs of of infection. Conclusion: In clinical praxis the introduction of a special endocarditisservice,a small team which has to be consulted in every suspected case of endocarditis, seems to be beneficial as well as the use of the Duke criteria for diagnosis those cases.
