the list of possibilities of what might be the trigger/cause of RCM.

something abnormal in the heart for bacteria to grow
on and then have bacteria introduced to the blood
stream when there is a dental procedure. For instance
my mother had scarlet fever as a child and developed a
murmur. She also has mitral valve prolapse. She takes
antibiotics before going to the dentist as a
prophalaxis. She takes Coumadin for the MVP.
A few years ago the Cincinnati Zoo lost a gorilla
after a dental procedure.
