In August 2023 the new European guidelines on the management of infective endocarditis were published by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Numerous recommendations were revised and supplemented by new ones. This review article outlines the essential modifications of the current ESC guidelines focusing on the prevention including antibiotic prophylaxis, the role of the endocarditis team, the revision of the diagnostic criteria, the paradigm shift towards oral antibiotic treatment, the timing and the indications for surgical treatment as well as the relevance of infections of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices.
