Objectives: While persons with overt renal failure have a well-described rise in troponin and NT-proBNP, it is less well described what the relationship is between cardiac markers and persons with impaired renal function, not requiring dialysis. Design & methods: We have collected ALL samples referred to our pathology practice over a 24 h period and measured hs-cTnI, hs-cTnT, NT-proBNP, calculated the eGFR, and related our measurements to clinical outcomes. Results: For both men and women, for...[Show more]
