METHODS: In a prospective observational cohort study data from 235 consecutive IE patients were collected at 2 tertiary heart centres in Copenhagen. Kidney function was evaluated as Estimated Endogenous Creatinine Clearance (EECC) calculated at the time of admission. Patients were divided into 4 groups according to their EECC: 1) >90 ml/min, 2) 60-90 ml/min, 3) 30-60 ml/min and 4) <30 ml/min. Mortality statistical analysis was then applied.

A total number of 76 patients died (32%), with an in-hospital mortality of 14%, and a post discharge mortality of 18%. In 64.9% EECC was decreased at time of admission, and a highly significant relationship between EECC and mortality was demonstrated, P<0.001. For every decrease of 10 ml/min in EECC we found an increase in Hazard Ratio for mortality of 23.1% (CI 13.2-33.8), P<0.001.

Calculated EECC at the time of admission is easily obtained in all IE patients and has a high and independent predictive prognostic value for mortality.",
