Infective endocarditis

Building on the innovative design of Lausanne’s Endocarditis Cohort, which includes all patients with clinical suspicion of infective endocarditis regardless of final diagnosis, a multicenter prospective Swiss study on patients with suspected infective endocarditis (PROSECCO: The PRospective Swiss EndoCarditis COhort and Platform) was initiated. This project aims to evaluate the performance of newer versions of the Duke criteria and, with the assistance of artificial intelligence, develop a new scoring system for diagnosing infective endocarditis.
