Course Description

This joint session of GWICC and CNAHA will focus on key advances in the diagnosis, medical and surgical management of infective endocarditis (IE).  Faculty members include renowned clinicians and academicians from the United States who are thought leaders in the field.  Case-based approach will be utilized to demonstrate pathologic features of IE affecting native and prosthetic heart valves, non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis and autoimmune endocarditis.  Echocardiography is an essential tool in the diagnosis, therapeutic planning and follow up of IE.  Echocardiographic features of IE and its paravalvular complications will be shown in illustrative cases. These cases highlight the importance of multimodality imaging in the assessment of and clinical decision-making in IE.  A focused discussion on right-sided infective endocarditis (RSIE) will be informative for clinicians taking care of patients with pacemaker/ICD and indwelling catheter.  Current guidelines in the diagnosis and management of RSIE will be reviewed in this session. Finally, surgical approaches to IE will be discussed.  Comprehensive review and updates on recent advances in surgical techniques will give audience an overall understanding of experiences in the operating room and thereafter.
