Prognostic factors in 61 cases of Staphylococcus aureus prosthetic valve infective endocarditis from the International Collaboration on Endocarditis merged database.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Staphylococcus aureus prosthetic valve infective endocarditis (SA-PVIE) is associated with a high mortality rate, but prognostic factors have not been clearly elucidated. The International Collaboration on Endocarditis merged database (ICE-MD) contained 2212 cases of definite infective endocarditis (as defined using the Duke criteria), 61 of which were SA-PVIE. Overall mortality rate was 47.5%, stroke was associated with an increased risk of death, and early valve replacement was not associated with a significant survival benefit in the whole population; however, patients who developed cardiac complications and underwent early valve replacement had the lowest mortality rate (28.6%).
