High risk
    Surgical or interventive procedures on the heart valves and/or thoracic, thoracoabdominal aorta and visceral segment of the abdominal aorta with the assumption of implantation a foreign material and high risk of IE (including TAVI, Mitraclip, homografts, stent grafts)
Mittleres Risiko
    Surgery on large vessels (except thoracic aorta), in particular on the subrenal abdominal aorta, the aorto-iliac region and the infrainquinal region with the assumption of replacement of the vessel with an artificial prosthesis or SG implantation
Geringes Risiko
    Any other heart surgery Interventive procedure on the heart or blood vessels with implantation of a foreign material with low risk (stents, occluders, pacemakers)
IE – Infective Endocarditis
CDD – Congenital Developmental Defect
TAVI – Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation
SG – Stent Graft
