Issues in the Management of Endocarditis Caused by Resistant Gram-positive Organisms.
Most cases of infective endocarditis (IE) are caused by gram-positive bacteria such as enterococci, streptococci, and staphylococci. Increasing resistance among these organisms has eroded the utility of mainstay antibiotics and complicated the management of this difficult-to-treat infection. Clinical experience with newer gram-positive antibiotics to treat IE is limited.
