[en] The European recommendations for the management of infective endocarditis have been updated in 2015. The therapeutic modalities depend on both a better prevention in high-risk population, a faster diagnosis through new approaches in medical imaging, and interdisciplinary collaboration by an << endocarditis team. >> Treatment involves antimicrobial therapy which can be complex, initially empirical and then targeted, depending on local infectious epidemiology, and whether the infringement affects a native or a prosthetic valve. The surgical indications are identified in the individual patient, based on the response to medical therapy, on complications (heart failure, uncontrolled infection and prevention of embolic events) the germ, the type of valve involved, and of course an integration with the patient's comorbidities.
