Usually not: Endocarditis is an infection of the endocardium(one of the layers of our hearts) and can be quite severe in untreated. Vascular inflammations(or vasculitis) can be a causative factor leading to endocarditis rather than a complication of.

Possible: If endocarditis is not promptly treated vegetations from heart can break loose and clog other arteries.
