Abstract

The aim of this review is to present current trend in the clinical management of the infective endocarditis (I.E.). This disease has still, to date high mortality. So it is, in spite of the most modem therapeutic approaches based on both the latest generation of antibiotics, and the application of the latest cardiac surgery. Therefore, it is important to focus on the medical and surgical treatment options currently most widely accepted among those available today, on the basis of international consensus and clinical experience acquired so far on this subject. In this article are reviewed these therapeutic modalities. The rapid and accurate diagnosis and prompt and proper implementation of integrated medical and surgical therapies are essential in order to be able to lower as much as possible the mortality of this severe disease.
