    Abstract

    BackgroundN-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) concentrations predict cardiovascular outcome in many settings. There are very few data assessing the utility of NT-proBNP concentrations in the prediction of long-term outcome after cardiac surgery. We assessed the ability of NT-proBNP to predict 3 yr mortality compared with validated clinical risk prediction tools.MethodsA secondary analysis of a prospectively recruited patient cohort of 1010 patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Baseline clinical details were obtained including EuroSCORE. Multi-variable modelling, area under the receiver operating characteristic curves (AUCs), and net reclassification improvement were utilized.ResultsNT-proBNP was a univariable predictor of 3 yr mortality but was no longer a significant predictor in a multivariable model (hazard ratio 1.00 per 250 ng litre-1, 95% confidence interval 0.98-1.02, P=0.80). The relative and additive predictive values of the preoperative EuroSCORE (both additive and logistic versions) and NT-proBNP concentrations were compared. All were predictive of 3 yr mortality (P
