Hello, folks. My friend has been diagnosed with infective endocarditis. I think that his father suffered from the same disease when he was alive, but I am not sure. I would like to know if there is a hereditary risk involved here. Can anyone tell me this? I would appreciate all your help.

Hi, there. I think that hereditary risk does not play here some important role. On the other hand, there can be some other risk factors that can be present. If we talk about kids, all congenital heart diseases can represent risk factors. Rheumatic heart disease is also another condition that can be risk. Anomalies of heart valves are another thing. I don’t know which factor your friend possesses. I hope everything will be all right. Good luck! Bye!

Hello. I totally agree with the previous post. However, I would add something. There is another risk factor responsible, but not mentioned. Drug addicts are at high risk for infective endocarditis. When they take used syringe, there is a high risk of infection. It can cause sepsis and infective endocarditis. Their right atrio-ventricular is especially affected. I hope I’ve helped a little. Bye!
