Abstract

In the catheterization laboratory, antibiotics are used to prevent bacterial endocarditis. Despite advances in diagnosis, antimicrobial therapy, surgical techniques and the management of complications, infective endocarditis (IE) is still a serious problem with high rates of mortality and morbidity. Theoretically endocarditis can be prevented using prophylactic antibiotics. Therefore, since 1955, IE antibiotic prophylaxis strategies have been in place for patients with cardiac disease potentially at risk of IE following bacteraemia during an invasive procedure.
