Hospital Clínico. University of Barcelona

Barcelona. Spain


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Infective endocarditis is an uncommon disease

associated to significant morbidity and mortality.

As in any infection within the cardiovascular surgery,

early diagnosis and aggresive management are

indicated

Infective endocarditis is a medical & surgical disease

which must be managed by a multidisciplinary

team with shared interests


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

The Team

The Hospital Clinico of Barcelona Endocarditis Study

Group is a multidisciplinary group specifically

dedicated to the study and treatment of infective

endocarditis and cardiovascular infections operational

for 25 years

Short Courses of Therapy for Infective Endocarditis

CONCLUSIONS

5. Patients allergic to penicillin who must receive vancomycin with or without an aminoglycoside must be treated during 4 wks

6. In our 25-year experience, one of every five episodes of native valve IE (general population + IVDAs) and almost one of every two episodes of IE in IVDAs were considered potential candidates for these short courses (2 wks) of therapy


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Infective Endocarditis in IVDAs & HIV infection

SUMMARY

1. The incidence of IE in IVDA in the AIDS era is decreasing probably due to the change of the drug administration habits in order to avoid HIV-infection

2. HIV-infected IVDA have a higher ratio of right-sided IE and S. aureus endocarditis than HIV-negative IVDA with IE

3. Mortality between HIV-infected or non-HIV-infected IVDA with IE is similar. However, mortality among HIV-infected IVDA is higher in IVDA with less than 200 CD4+ cells/µL or with AIDS criteria


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Infective Endocarditis in IVDAs & HIV Infection

SUMMARY

4. IVDA with non-complicated MSSA right-sided IE can be succesfully treated with an IV short-course regimen of nafcillin or cloxacillin plus an aminoglycoside during 2 weeks, although the addition of an aminoglycoside may be avoided or reduced to the first 3-7 days

5. Tricuspid valve replacement using mitral homografts can be a safely alternative to tricuspid valvulectomy for those IVDA with endocarditis who need right heart surgery

42nd ICAAC. San Diego, CA. September 27-30, 2002

The Spanish Aorto-cavitary Fistula Endocarditis Working Group


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

No clinical infective endocarditis (IE) series have been performed studying the development of aorto-cavitary fistulas (ACF) as a result of spread of infection from valvular tissue towards perivalvular structures. Our aims were to investigate the clinical, echocardiographic and microbiologic features and prognostic factors of in-hospital mortality in patients with IE and ACF.

Retrospective and multicentre study at 11 Spanish and 1 North-american Hospitals in patients with IE and ACF.


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Spread of infection in infective endocarditis (IE) from valvular structures to the surrounding perivalvular tissue results in periannular complications.

Rupture of abscesses and pseudoaneurysms in the sinuses of Valsalva result in the development of aorto-cavitary fistulas and intracardiac shunts.

Aorto-cavitary fistula formation is an unusual complication of IE. An incidence of 1% of all cases of IE has been estimated. Fistulization of perivalvular abscesses occurs in 6-9% of cases.

Basic considerations


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

* Multicenter, international, retrospective, descriptive study performed between 1992 and 2001

* Infective endocarditis diagnosed according to Duke criteria

* Aorto-cavitary fistulization documented by TTE/TEE

* Univariate analysis of prognostic factors of mortality

* Aorto-cavitary fistulization in IE is an unfrequent event and occurs in patients with aortic endocarditis with high grade of local tissue destruction.

* It was associated with staphylococci and streptococci native-valve IE and with coagulase-negative staphylococci prosthetic valve IE.

* In-hospital mortality was high even when most patients were referred to surgical treatment.

* Congestive heart failure identified the subgroup of patients with the worst prognosis.

Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Conclusions

* Despite the frequent use of surgery for the treatment of PVIE

this condition continues to be associated with high in-hospital

mortality

* After adjustment for factors related to surgical intervention,

brain embolism and S. aureus infection were independently

associated with in-hospital mortality and a trend toward a

survival benefit of surgery was evident

* It is not popular

* Highly demanding

* Suboptimal results

* Team approach

Cross-over point


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Reasons to predict mortality in Cardiac Surgery

1. Helping to determine indications for surgery

2. Quality monitoring

Additive EuroScore works well for most purposes


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Considerations

The relationship between risk factors is not additive

Combined impact of two or more factors on operative

risk may be more than simple sum

Logistic score more realistic


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

The reality

* Infective endocarditis is a high-risk situation

* There is lack of data regarding risk assessment

before valve surgery

Comments

There is a very good correlation between logistic

EuroSCORE and mortality for the entire group

Division in subgroups yields a decrease in statistical

power but correlation is almost the same in all subgroups

The area is good in the prosthetic valve IE although non

significant by position


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Comments

The area is very good for Gram – and polymicrobial

although with low statistical power

There is statistical power for significance in the

Staphylococci and Streptococci groups


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Limitations

Small sample size

Statistical power decreases when analyzing subgroups

Just preliminary results

When to use Logistic EuroScore?

  • To calculate a precise and realistic risk prediction for a very high-risk patient, particularly when the indication for surgery may not be clear

- To monitor quality of care in institutions where a substantial proportion of patients are of very high-risk

- To help in the further study of risk modelling by groups and institutions with a scientific interest in the subject

- To carry out normal stratification in institutions with easy availability of accesible information technology, especially where high-risk surgery forms a substantial part of the workload

The Future of risk stratification

* Larger sample size

* More institutions involved

* Subgroup analysis (Pathogens, abscess…)

* Team approach

* The role of ICE

* Changing our approach to patients?

* Quality assurance


Carlos a mestres md phd fetcs consultant cardiovascular surgery

Conclusions

* IE is a very serious pathology

* It is not popular

* Highly demanding

* Suboptimal results

* Team approach

* Risk takers
