The purpose of this study is to investigate the prognostic value of admission high-sensitivity troponin in patients with acute decompensated heart failure.
Condition or disease
Patients admitted for acute decompensated heart failure are included in the study. After gaining informed consent, concentrations of high-sensitivity troponin on admission and on discharge are assessed. 6 months after discharged, the incidence of clinical endpoint (mortality of all cause and of cardiovascular cause, hospitalization) is assessed by telephone contact to the patient and/or the physician. The aim of the study is to investigate the prognostic value of high-sensitivity troponin concentration for predicting death and re-hospitalization.
