Macrovascular disease is the primary cause of death in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (Gardner and Shoback, 2007). Microvascular disease is part of the link between diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. It is the disease of the small blood vessels such as capillaries and arterioles (Gardner and Shoback, 2007). This disease causes thinking of the basement membrane of the capillaries. When involving the retina it causes diabetic retinopathy, and when affecting the kidney causes diabetic nephropathy (Gardner and Shoback, 2007).
The predisposing factors for endocarditis include, aging for older people who have aortic stenosis; intravenous drug abuse, presence of prosthetic heart valve, use of intravascular devices which may result in nosocomial like, methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); and renal dialysis (Lewis et al, 2011, 841-842). Signs and symptoms include fever, chills, weakness, malaise, fatigue and anorexia due to bacterial infection. Joint pain, muscle, pain, back pain, abdominal discomfort, headache, weight loss and clubbing of fingers resulting from heart failure. Black longitudinal streaks in nails bed Petechiae which result from fragments and microorganism embolization of vegetative lesion as evidenced by conjunctiva, lips, buccal mucosa and palate , and ankles, feet and anticubital and popliteal areas. Painful, tender, red or purple, pea-sized lesions may show on fingertips or toes.

Control angiography with QCA and IVUS assessment of the target segment was done at one year. 3.5. Endpoints The primary endpoint was the cumulative rate of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) consisting of cardiac death, myocardial infarction (MI) and Ischemia-driven target lesion revascularization (TLR). Secondary endpoints included cardiac death, all-cause death, MI, TLR, target vessel revascularization (TVR), stent thrombosis (ST), and device success rate. Cardiac death included death resulting from an acute MI, sudden cardiac death, death due to heart failure and death due to cardiac procedures.
