Brief Summary:
Infective endocarditis (IE) is associated with high hospital mortality for various reasons; one of them is circulatory failure in patients who undergo cardiac surgery for IE. One discussed reason underlying circulatory failure during surgery is the release of vasodilatatory mediators and cytokines. This study examines the efficacy and safety of a hemoadsorption filter which is approved for the reduction of the concentration of cytokines in the bloodstream.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Infective Endocarditis Device: hemoadsorber for removal of cytokines Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The investigators assume a common standard deviation of 3.8 points and that a 1.4-point lower SOFA score in the Intervention Group is of clinical relevance.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Interventional group
Use of hemoadsorber for removal of cytokines. Participants undergoing cardiac surgery due to infective endocarditis will be treated using a hemoadsorption device (CytoSorb) within the cardiopulmonary Bypass circuit (=Intervention)
Device: hemoadsorber for removal of cytokines
Use of the hemoadsorber during cardiac surgery with CPB. Hemoadsorber is integrated into the CPB circuit according to manufacturer's recommendation.
Other Name: CytoSorb(R)

No Intervention: Control group
Participants undergoing cardiac surgery due to infective endocarditis will be treated according to Standard of care (no hemoadsorption advice installed in the CPB circuit)



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. SOFA Score [ Time Frame: 24 hours before until day 9 post-surgery ]
    The investigators will test if mean SOFA scores are different for the experimental and control group.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall mortality rate [ Time Frame: until day 30 post surgery ]
    Overall mortality rate until day 30 post-surgery

  2. Changes in cytokine and cfDNA levels [ Time Frame: 24 hours before, during cardiac surgery and 24 hours after surgery ]
    changes in cytokine and cfDNA levels will be measured at different time points before, during and after surgery in both groups; only for the first 2x25 patients

  3. SOFA subscores [ Time Frame: 24 hours before surgery until day 9 post-surgery ]
    single SOFA subscores will be analyzed

  4. Days on ventilator, vasopressor and renal replacement therapy [ Time Frame: until day 30 post-surgery ]
    Total days on ventilator, vasopressor and renal replacement therapy within 30 days post-surgery will be assessed

  5. incidence of stroke [ Time Frame: until day 30 post-surgery ]
    incidence of stroke within 30 days post-surgery will be assessed

  6. length of ICU and in-hospital stay [ Time Frame: until day 30 post-surgery ]
    total length of ICU and in-hospital stay until day 30 post-surgery
