Prognostic impact of NT-proBNP and renal function in comparison to contemporary multi-marker risk scores in heart failure patients.


BACKGROUND Multi-marker risk scores accurately predict prognosis in heart failure patients but calculation is complex. AIMS To compare the prognostic accuracy of the Seattle Heart Failure Survival Score (SHFS) and a model derived from the CHARM programme, with laboratory parameters NT-proBNP and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). METHODS AND RESULTS In a… (More)
