Introduction: Diagnosis of Infective Endocarditis(IE) can be challenging due to negative blood
cultures and difficulties in imaging. Transesophageal echocardiography(TEE) is the
gold standard but due to the anterior location of the pulmonary valve, this approach
is notoriously difficult and challenging. The Congenital Heart Disease(CHD) population
is even more challenging due to post-surgical changes, high incidence of prosthetic
material uses and abnormal valve apparatus. Cardiovascular CT(CCT) has been shown
to have a diagnostic role for IE in prosthetic and bioprosthetic valves in adults.
The aim of this study was to assess the incremental value of CCT for IE in children
and young adults with CHD.
