Answer

Patients are suspected of having a high risk of keloid formation. This must be taken into consideration if cosmetic surgery is contemplated because keloids may negate any gain from such procedures.

Subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE) prophylaxis may be required prior to any dental or surgical procedure in women with cardiac valve disease to prevent SBE.
