a) Epidemiology and prognostic factors of various types of endocarditis using the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, the Spanish (GAMES registry) and several international (ICE. EuroEndo, MEDIC) databases of endocarditis:
Impact of vancomycin MIC on the prognosis of left endocarditis due to methicillin-sensitive and methicillin resistant S. aureus
Epidemiology of endocarditis on TAVI
Impact of liver cirrhosis on the prognosis of endocarditis
Diagnosis and treatment of infections / endocarditis on cardiovascular devices
Role of molecular biology techniques (PCR 16S and 18S) on valvular tissue or intracardiac
electronic devices infections
Role of nuclear medicine techniques (leukocyte-labelled scintigraphy, PET/CT scan) in the diagnosis and extension of prosthetic valve endocarditis or intracardiac electronic devices infections
