Determination of a predictive cutoff value of NT-proBNP testing for long-term survival in ED patients with acute heart failure.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The main objective of this study was to determine a predictive cutoff value for plasma N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) that could successfully predict the long-term (4-year) survival of patients with acute heart failure (HF) at the time of admission to the emergency department (ED). To our best knowledge, our study is the… (More)
