Efficacy of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide digit number for screening of cardiac disease in new haemodialysis patients.

Abstract

AIM The usefulness of the absolute N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-ProBNP) concentration and its digit number for screening for cardiac disease was explored in new haemodialysis patients. METHODS A cross-sectional study involving 71 (68 ± 14 years, 83% male) new dialysis patients was conducted. Receiver operator characteristic curve analysis… (More)
