Abstract BACKGROUND: French Polynesia is a French overseas collectivity in the South Pacific Ocean, where data on infective endocarditis (IE) are lacking. AIMS: To investigate the epidemiology and outcomes of IE in French Polynesia. METHODS: All hospital records from consecutive patients hospitalized in Taaone Hospital, Tahiti, from 2015 to 2018, with an International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision, separation diagnosis of IE (I330), were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS: From 190 hospital charts reviewed, 105 patients with a final diagnosis of IE, confirmed according to the mo...

AbstractThe aim of the study was to evaluate the ability to detect extra-cardiac foci by means of whole-body18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in patients with definite endocarditis (IE) according to the modified Duke criteria and investigate the clinical impact of the findings. From January 2011 to December 2015 we included 178 patients (mean age 66  ± 14 years, 25% female) with IE in this multicentre study. FDG-PET/CT was part of the work-up for extra-cardiac foci in the including hospitals and was performed at a median of 9 days (IQR 10) af...

ConclusionsIntraoperative hemoadsorption might reduce the incidence of postoperative sepsis and sepsis-related death. Additionally, patients with intraoperative hemoadsorption showed greater hemodynamic stability. These data suggest that intraoperative hemoadsorption may improve surgical outcome in patients with mitral valve endocarditis.Graphical abstract
