    Prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) is a rare but severe complication of infective endocarditis, associated with a high risk of developing aortic root complications and a high mortality rate. Surgical intervention is often the preferred treatment in complicated cases of aortic root aneurysm following prosthetic endocarditis. However, non-compliant patients with recommended treatment are at an increased risk of recurrent infection despite surgical valve replacement, introducing the ethical debate between surgical intervention and conservative palliative care in such patients. Our case highlights the management of this condition, and demonstrates the need to develop nationwide policies regarding the critical decision made for the management of non-compliant patients with aortic complications following prosthetic valve endocarditis.
