89650-6Tropheryma whipplei DNA [Presence] in Implanted device by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

In recent years, several types of bacteria have been associated with culture-negative endocarditis, including Coxiella burnetti, Tropheryma whipplei, and Bartonella species. Because cultures are sterile, diagnosis relies on other methodologies, including molecular techniques. [PMID:17889492] Such infections may involve native or prosthetic valves.

Part Descriptions

LP28437-9   Tropheryma whipplei
Tropheryma whipplei, formerly called Tropheryma whippeli, is a gram-positive bacillus that causes Whipple's disease. Both the organism and disease are named for Dr. George Whipple. Most people infected by T. whipplei are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms followed by a protective immune response. However, a small number develop Whipple's disease, which involves multiple organ systems, including the gastrointestinal system, heart and vascular system, central nervous system, and joints. Symptoms include abdominal pain and diarrhea, weight loss, arthralgias, and fever. Cardiac involvement includes endocarditis and myocarditis, and neurological manifestations span a wide range, including ataxia, seizures, supranuclear ophthalmoplegia, and delirium. [PMID:28722966] Molecular assays are used to diagnose T. whipplei in a variety of specimen types, including stool, blood, and tissue. Targets include the 16S rRNA gene and T. whipplei-specific repetitive DNA sequences. [PMID:28298472] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP183564-6   Implanted device
The "'Implanted device" System in LOINC represents a device inserted into the body that replaces, repairs, or enhances a native body part. Such devices are sometimes called internal prosthetics. Examples include artificial heart valves, cochlear implants, orthopedic hardware, and intravascular filters. This System does not include external prosthetic devices such as limb prostheses.
