In summary, all patients with staphylococcal or gram-positive bacteremia should undergo echocardiographic assessment, while in patients after valve replacement the diagnostic workup should include transesophageal echocardiography. Patients with intracardiac devices and fever should always be evaluated for infective endocarditis, blood cultures should be drawn before antibiotic administration, and transesophageal echocardiography is highly recommended.
