Abstract

In this report, we present a case of a 68-year-old male who developed extensive, devastating prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) several months following aortic valve replacement with a tissue valve St. Jude Epic Supra. He was successfully treated with a complex surgical procedure. In the discussion, we focus on the issues of prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis and various modes of treatment.
