Aminoglycoside In The Treatment Of Endocarditis


An aminoglycoside is a group of bacteria, antibiotics that work by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis. The use of these medications is limited because of the potential side effects because it can cause damage to the ears and to the kidneys. All aminoglycoside are similar to one another in the antibacterial activity, pharmacokinetics, and the levels of toxins.

Aminoglycoside is not absorbed properly if given through the mouth so that it should be granted through an infusion for systemic infection.

Aminoglycoside used if antibiotics had lower levels of toxins cannot be used or are not effective. Aminoglycoside is mainly active against gram-negative aerobic bacilli, Staphylococcus, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, but not so powerful against anaerobic bacteria.

Aminoglycoside antibiotic is a very powerful and useful in treating infection is dangerous.

How to use Aminoglycoside in the treatment of endocarditis

Aminoglycoside is often used in combination with a beta-lactam and glycopeptide to treat streptococcal bacterial endocarditis due to Alpha-hemolytic, Staphylococcus, and Enterococcus. Recommendations for the dosage and duration of therapy aminoglycoside variety; basic laboratory and clinical evidence discussed further to regulation suggested treatment.

The role of aminoglycoside in treating Endocarditis can cause infection. The combination of beta-lactam with aminoglycoside shorten the treatment of endocarditis due to streptococcus sensitive to penicillin when compared to the beta-lactam alone. Patients who are more at risk (for example with a prosthetic heart valve, the duration of the clinical symptoms > 3 months) should be treated with penicillin for 4 weeks in combination with an aminoglycoside for 2 weeks.

Once daily dose Aminoglycoside (ODD) streptococcal endocarditis can be suggested in that sensitive to penicillin. Treatment of endocarditis due to streptococcus that is highly resistant to penicillin requires a mix of treatment with penicillin while aminoglycoside with longer duration. At the moment, aminoglycoside ODD not to be recommended. Enterococcus Endocarditis require treatment mix for 4-6 week. Based on experimental data, aminoglycoside ODD looks lost to drug dosing every 8 hours. Isolation of enterococcus should be examined for a high degree of immunity against streptomycin and gentamicin.

Gentamicin is a preferred agent if not done susceptibility tests. Aminoglycoside is given during the first day of the 3-5 treatment of endocarditis staphylococcus on original heart valve in order to shorten the duration of bacteremia. Prosthetic heart valve endocarditis for staphylococcus, aminoglycoside is given in the first 2 weeks of treatment. However, no clinical data isolation and vulnerability to methicilin are not reliable to support this recommendation.

Artificial heart valve endocarditis due to a combination of staphylococcus without clumping with aminoglycoside looked pressing the emergence of variants that are prone to rifampin for treatment. Endocarditis right due to Staphylococcus which are prone to exhaustion with methicilin treatment 2 weeks beta-lactam aminoglycoside at once.

This could be a short-term treatment is recommended in low-risk patients, for example, that without experiencing heart failure and vegetation 2 cm3 and with < isolation were vulnerable to the aminoglycoside.

Always consult with a doctor before using aminoglycoside. Tell the doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding, it is also about medicines that you drink including natural supplements and herbs, and if you are allergic to any drugs that are included in the aminoglycoside class.
