Pulmonic Regurgitation Following Staphylococcal Endocarditis
An Intracardiac Phonocardiographic Study
Isolated pulmonic regurgitation was found in a 30-year-old man 5 years after an episode of bacteriologically proved and successfully treated staphylococcal endocarditis. Intracardiac phonocardiography was useful in confirming the diagnosis, and simultaneous intracardiac pressure and sound recording afforded a plausible explanation for the unusual murmur of organic pulmonic insufficiency.
