Prognostic efficacy of cardiac biomarkers for mortality in dialysis patients
Background: The high prevalence of cardiovascular mortality in the end-stage renal disease population is well established. The aim of this current study was to document the relative prognostic significance of established cardiac biomarkers troponin T (TnT), troponin I (TnI), B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro-BNP (NT-pro-BNP) in this population.
