  • Subject:
    mesheuropmc: cardiovascular diseases | hormones, hormone substitutes, and hormone antagonists

Objective: To determine preoperative ventricular function in vascular amputees by measuring N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and to analyse the relationship between NT-proBNP levels and 30-day postoperative mortality. Design: Prospective pilot study.... View more
