Brief Summary:
Evaluation of serial measurement of novel biomarker for diagnosis, prognosis or therapy monitoring in patients presenting with acute decompensated heart failure.

Condition or disease
Acute Heart Failure

Detailed Description:

Background: Heart failure (HF) is a chronic and progressive illness resulting from a variety of cardiac causes, including ischemic and valvular heart disease, dilatative cardiomyopathy or hypertension. HF may also develop suddenly, particularly as a complication of acute myocardial infarction or as an acute exacerbation in patients with previously compensated chronic HF. Diagnosis and in-hospital management of HF is often demanding and outcome especially regarding rehospitalizations is impaired. Novel biomarker may be very helpful in assessment of diagnosis, prognosis, and severity of HF as well as for treatment monitoring.

Design: Prospective, multicenter observational study Setting: University Hospital Basel, Kantonsspital Aarau, Kantonsspital Luzern, Kantonsspital Wolhusen Patients: Patients with acute HF not requiring ICU admission

Measurement of serial biomarker (BNP, NT-proBNP, MR-proADM, ST2, hs-cTnI and Copeptin) will be performed at presentation, at 6 hours (h), 12h, 18h, 24h, at 48h, at day 6 and at hospital discharge. Follow- up will be performed at 6 Month, 1 year and 2 years.
