Because there is no timely treatment of a small cold, congenital heart disease, Liu suffered from severe acute infective endocarditis, had to accept a complex flap surgery to save lives.
It is understood that Liu, 21 years old, at the age of 5 months to find a congenital ventricular septal defect found in the past few years have been feeling good physical condition. Two months ago, in the work of Liu due to cold catch a cold, have a fever, then began to cough, he did not seriously, in the drugstore to buy cold medicine, have what effect.
Half a month ago, still from time to time cough, fever symptoms in the family's repeated persuasion Liu, rushed to the hospital for treatment. Examination showed that because there is no timely and effective treatment of cold, bacteria have invaded the heart, Liu suffered from severe acute infective endocarditis, at any time there may be life-threatening.
Congenital heart disease with cardiac structure and hemodynamics changes, easy to cause the endocardial damage, this is the pathological basis of the occurrence of infective endocarditis; long time cold causes the bacteria in the blood and blood into the heart with spreading, is the direct cause of acute infective endocarditis.
The bacteria invade the heart, gradually gathered in Liu had heart valve edge is very fragile, and began a mass of wanton destruction of heart valves, lead to the occurrence of endometrial infection and ulcer, aortic valve appeared 1.5 cm diameter perforation, mitral valve perforation appeared on 1 cm. In order to save the life of Liu, the experts decided to perform his replacement surgery. Statistics show that the mortality rate of patients with acute endocarditis generally more than 30%.
During the surgery, resection Liu pathological aortic valve and mitral valve, clear in his heart in the agglomeration of clumps of bacteria; then he repair of congenital ventricular septal defect, the replacement of a new artificial mitral valve and aortic valve.
Is the so-called "a big hole in hardship, ventricular septal defect is the most common congenital heart disease, Liu had only a VSD repair surgery can cure congenital heart disease. Now, as a result of a cold caused by acute infective endocarditis, had to replace the two heart valves, and the need for lifelong anticoagulation, Liu regret.
Special remind everyone, if congenital heart disease patients with a cold, fever and other symptoms, be sure to receive formal treatment in a timely manner, to prevent complications such as infective endocarditis may cause serious consequences. Patients with congenital heart disease is best to seize the best opportunity for treatment before school, timely surgical treatment, in order to avoid exacerbations or complications.
