Risk stratification is of utmost importance for patients with infective endocarditis (IE) who need surgery. However, for these critically ill patients, aspecific scoring systems are used to predict the risk of death after surgery. The aim of this study was both to analyze the risk factors for in-hospital death, which complicates surgery for IE and to create a mortality risk score based on the results of this analysis.

Abstract

Risk stratification is of utmost importance for patients with infective endocarditis (IE) who need surgery. However, for these critically ill patients, aspecific scoring systems are used to predict the risk of death after surgery. The aim of this study was both to analyze the risk factors for in-hospital death, which complicates surgery for IE and to create a mortality risk score based on the results of this analysis.
