Material and methods: There were 149 male (76%) and 47 female (24%) patients with mean age of 44,6 years (15 to 70).

PVE was found in A and M position in 6 and 6 pts respectively. Seventy-one patients were considered to have active endocarditis (positive blood and tissue cultures and/o annular abscess. The remaining 125 pts had healed endocarditis. Local treatment of native annulus, abscess and artifical annulus with iodine tincture was used routinely in all patients. Results: Postoperative mortality, 90 days (10 pts). Closing date of the follow up was January 31, 1997, including 113 operated patients
