In-hospital mortality of BAV and MVP groups (5.6% and 10.1%, respectively) was significantly lower than that of the high-risk and low/moderate-risk groups, which showed similar mortality rates (29.0% and 28.3%, respectively; both p < 0.01). To further investigate these differences in in-hospital mortality, we analyzed several factors known to be associated with an adverse prognosis in IE. Results of this analysis showed that patients from high-risk and low/ moderate-risk groups were older, had higher comorbidity rates and higher surgical risk, and contracted nosocomial IE and staphylococcal IE more frequently than did patients with BAV and MVP (Table 4). When a propensity score analysis was performed between MVP and BAV individuals and high- and low/ intermediate-risk subjects matched according to age, Charlson index, nosocomial IE, staphylococcal IE, and logEuroSCORE, in-hospital mortality rates between the BAV and MVP groups and the high-risk and low/ moderate-risk groups were not statistically different (Online Tables 4 and 5).
