The focus on this clinical cohort study is based on the long-term outcome of patients with endocarditis. Furthermore, we aim to improve diagnosis and management processes. Such a register is only possible due to the important collaboration with other disciplines such as cardiology, cardiac surgery, nuclear medicine and microbiology.
The Endovascular and cardiac valve infection cohort study (ENVALVE – ENdovascular and cardiac VALVEinfection Registry: New Pathogens and Diagnostic Possibilities) is an ongoing single-center research project at the University hospital Zurich dealing with adults aged 18 years or older with an endovascular infection. It was established in 2018.
