Scientific Session ENDOCOR

Wednesday 16 March 2022

On Wednesday 16 March 2022 Netherlands Heart Institute organizes a scientific session about Endocor from 14:00 - 17:00.

Over the last decade, a lot of research in this field has been performed in the Netherlands, including cutting edge advanced imaging approaches that dictated the ESC guidelines. Recently, it was decided to join forces, and register all IE patients in a NHR database to obtain a contemporary national investigation of the care and outcomes of IE. Next, the investigators (Amsterdam UMC, Hagaziekenhuis, ErasmusMC, UMCU, UMCG, UMCM, LUMC, Antonius ziekenhuis, Noordwest ziekenhuis, OLVG, Elisabeth-Tweesteden ziekenhuis and open for other centers) agreed to build a joined research database, and initiate multicenter studies. We propose to initiate a web-based data collection of all IE patients (possible or definite according to Dukes criteria) that are discussed in the local multidisciplinary endocarditis heart teams. Next to relevant clinical data at baseline, we particularly focus on the role of imaging modalities in relation to therapy, and outcome at follow-up. Currently, several local initiatives are already in place, and it is planned that these databases are merged and replaced by a central data collection. In line with other successful multicenter initiatives (e.g. CONCOR) we organized ENDOCOR. The steering committee will host representatives from all participating centers.
