PMID:  10752424     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article attempts to simplify the decision-making process regarding endocarditis prophylaxis. Cardiac conditions are stratified as to risk and oral procedures for which prophylaxis is or is not recommended are outlined. The cardiac conditions are paired with various oral procedures to clarify which require prophylaxis. Antibiotic regimens are described. A distinction is made between MVP patients who require prophylaxis and those who do not. Finally, the value of professional oral healthcare for cardiac patients is confirmed.
