C-reactive protein, not cardiac troponin T, improves risk prediction in hypertensives with type A aortic dissection.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate prognostic role of inflammatory biomarkers, cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and D-dimer in type A acute aortic dissection (AAD) and to examine whether they might help in risk stratification beyond values of International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection (IRAD) score. METHODS Baseline biomarkers were determined… (More)
