There is a genetic: component to valvular heart disease but it is associated with variable penetrance. There is no specific connection between BAV and MVP. Whether you "gave" this to him or not is seemingly irrelevant. You also gave him life! For that I am sure you are both thankful!

Dr. Shahin Tavackoli
Cardiology 23 years experience
Support heart rate: Occasionally after aortic valve replacement and possibly, more commonly, with mitral valve replacement, the conduction system of the heart gets damaged and the electrical communication between the upper and the lower chambers of the heart is lost (the pathway passes by the annulus of these valves). The heart rate then, has to be supported with a pacemaker.

Yes: You need to discuss it with your physician very soon & likely needs prompt care with cultures & further studies. Could be a higher dosage or a different antibiotic. It can also be a non infectious cause.

Dr. Aranda is absolutely correct. If you are receiving an antibiotic like penicillin or cephalosporins, you may not respond to Legionnaire's Disease, Mycoplasma, or other atypical pneumonias. Or this might be viral, in which case you will not respond to anything but time.
