The Euro Heart Survey on Valvular Heart Disease (VHD) was conducted in 2001. In 92 centres from 25 countries, 5,001 adult patients were included with moderate to severe native VHD, infective endocarditis, or previous valve intervention. Enrolled patients were hospitalised in medical (43%) or surgical(19%) cardiology departments, or visited the outpatient clinic (38%).
