By Noah Webster.
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
Exudative and proliferative inflammatory alterations of the endocardium, characterized by the presence of vegetations on the surface of the endocardium or in the endocardium itself, and most commonly involving a heart valve, but sometimes affecting the inner lining of the cardiac chambers or the endocardium elsewhere. It may occur as a primary disorder or as a complication of or in association with another disease. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Inflammation of the endocardium, or lining membrane of the heart. It may involve only the membrane covering the valves, valvular e., or the general lining of the chambers of the heart, mural e.
By Stedman, Thomas Lathrop
By William R. Warner
The lining membrane of the heart, and itis, inflammation. In this disease, the heart's action is visibly increased, and very manifest to the touch; the hand is strongly repelled, and, at moments, is sensible of a trembling vibratory motion. Percussion gives a dull sound over a surface of several inches, owing, according to Bouilland, to the inflammatory turgescence of the heart, and the engorged state of its cavities. On auscultation, a bruit de souffet is generally heard, masking one or both sounds of the heart; and the ear is sensible of a metallic ringing with each systole of the ventricle. The pulsations are rapid as well as strong, and, with few exceptions, irregular, unequal and intermittent. The pulse, by the way, does not always indicate the force or number of the heart's contractions.
By Robley Dunglison
By Willam Alexander Newman Dorland
Inflammation of the endocardium or internal lining of the heart. The valves on the left side of the heart are usually affected, and the lesion consists of a deposit of fibrin and leukocytes, leading later to fibrosis with deformity of the valves. This condition is caused by the pyogenic bacteria, such as Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, and Diplococcus pneumoniae.
