(1973, The Chicago Tribune) Dear Dr. Lamb - Recently I w a s hospitalized for subacute bacterial endocarditis. It was explained as bacteria in the heart valve. My temperature was erratic and went as high as 102 degrees. I felt tired and listless all the time. After II days of intravenous penicillin, the symptoms disappeared. My temperature was normal and I feel fine. Could you please explain this disease more fully? What causes it or how do you get it? I was told it does not cause heart attacks. Is it contagious? Dear Reader - Endocarditis means inflamimation of the inside of the heart. Bac terial endocarditis merely identifies that bacteria are the cause. Germs lodge usually on the valve leaflets inside the heart and start an infection Usually individuals who have this problem have had damage to the heart valve before, commonly from rheumatic heart disease. Birth defects of the heart also predispose to this problem. The infection that develops on the inside of the heart may cause no major damage or it can destroy the heart valve leaving the heart damaged even after the infection had been cured. Small pieces of tissue from the infected area can become dislodged inside the heart and be circulated to other parts of the body. It's obviously a very important and serious disease when it occurs. Like most infections, it's treated with antibiotics. The choice of antibiotic medicine depends on what kind of germ is causing the problem. Large doses of antibiotics are commonly given until the infection has been eradicated. At that time, the temperature returns to normal and the patient recovers. Because this is a serious di sease, it deserves immediate treatment and even better, it should be prevented. For this reason, heart specialists ask individuals who have damage to their heart valves or birth defects of the heart, to take antibiotics any time they have a respiratory illness, an operation or a dental procedure. Even chewing vigorously will sometimes cause bacteria around the teeth to be dis lodged into the blood stream. Then they are carried by the circulation to the heart and if you already have a defect the bacteria may lodge on the heart valve and set up the infection. Taking antibiotics at the time of dental procedures is a must' for people with damaged valves or birth defects of the heart and simply having tho teeth cleaned alone is a dental procedure. I have seen more than one cause of bacterial endocarditis follow simple cleaning of the teeth which had been disregarded and the patient had failed to take the protective antibiotics that this doctor had recommended. I want to make it clear that for normal, healthy people antibiotics for dental procedures are not necessary. The antibiotic protective measures to prevent bacterial endocarditis are for individuals who already have a problem, specifically, damaged heart valves or birth defects and of. course anyone who has ever had bacterial endocarditis in the past.
