INTRODUCTION The accurate prediction of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) is an unmet clinical need. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a novel sensitive and specific marker of AKI. METHODS A total of 207 consecutive patients presenting to the emergency department with AHF were enrolled. Plasma NGAL was(More)
BACKGROUND Renal function, as quantified by the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), is a predictor of death in acute heart failure (AHF). It is unknown whether one of the clinically-available serum creatinine-based formulas to calculate eGFR is superior to the others for predicting mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS We quantified renal function using(More)
