  1. Clinical and health care cost consequences of infective endocarditis in mitral valve prolapse.

    Article - En anglais

    Although mitral valve prolapse (MVP) predisposes to infective endocarditis (IE), both the clinical consequences of IE and the increment in health care costs it imposes on patients with MVP remain uncertain.

    Accordingly, 21 MVP patients with IE and 41 age- and sex-matched control subjects with initially uncomplicated MVP were followed (95% complete) a mean of 8 years.

    Outcomes included death, complication, health care use and cumulative incremental costs.
