Abstract

Echocardiography is integral to the diagnosis and management of infective endocarditis (IE) because it can identify vegetations and complications associated with spreading infection, assess the severity of concomitant valve dysfunction, and document the impact of the disease on ventricular function and cardiovascular hemodynamics including pulmonary artery pressure. This chapter focuses on the role of echocardiography in IE with an emphasis on native and prosthetic valves. It discusses the imaging features of vegetations and complications of endocarditis including embolus, abscess, perforation, and other forms of valvular disruption and, in the case of prosthetic valves, variable degrees of dehiscence. It also covers the prognostic role of echocardiography, particularly in the prediction of embolic risk, and emphasizes the important role that echocardiography plays during follow-up treatment, and for intraprocedural guidance during surgical intervention.
