AIMS B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) decrease during hospitalization has been related to reduced risk of readmission and death in patients with acute heart failure (AHF). Conversely, the exact role of blood urea nitrogen (BUN) is still debated. Currently, no data have been published regarding the relation between these two biomarkers and the relation between them and clinical signs of congestion. METHODS We consecutively studied 107 patients with diagnosis of AHF and systolic dysfunction… CONTINUE READING
