PRO-IMPLANT Foundation just issued drafts of three new Pocket Guides on Cardiovascular Infections, which can be all downloaded here for free:
- Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Device (CIED) Infections
- Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) Infections
- Vascular Graft Infections (VGI)
The Pocket Guides summarize the latest evidence and practical recommendations on diagnosis and treatment of these complex infections in a technologically rapidly evolving medical field. They were developed in close cooperation with the German Heart Center Berlin (Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin, DHZB, www.dhzb.de), Director Prof. Volkmar Falk and his team of heart surgeons: Eugenij Potapov, Christoph Starck, Felix Schönrath and Robert Hammerschmidt.
