AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic utility of small troponin I (TnI) elevations, serial TnI measurements, and the combination of TnI and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in patients with decompensated heart failure (HF). METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and forty-four patients with acute HF were followed from admission to 90 days post-discharge. Primary endpoints were all cause mortality and HF-related readmission. Troponin I and BNP levels were checked on admission… CONTINUE READING
