Anticoagulation or Surgical Excision is Likely to Improve Cardiovascular Outcomes
Abstract

Anticoagulation or Surgical Excision is Likely to Improve Cardiovascular Outcomes. It is associated with high incidence of embolic events the most frequent ones being cerebral; the diagnosis is usually reached at post-mortem. Our case clearly demonstrates that vegetations on cardiac valves may pose a diagnostic dilemma and surgical intervention may be needed to reach a diagnosis.
