Abstract

Acute Stanford type A aortic dissection (AAD) is associated with substantial perioperative mortality and morbidity. N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is a prognostic biomarker of outcome in cardiovascular disease. Its predictive power in patients undergoing emergency surgery for acute type A aortic dissection is yet unknown. We prospectively measured pre-operative NT-proBNP in 104 patients (39 female, 35%; median age 61 years) undergoing emergency surgery for AAD during a 6-year study period. European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation risk scores were recorded and patients were followed for 30-day mortality and major adverse events (MAEs) as defined by the need for rethoracotomy, occurrence of postoperative heart failure, neurologic deficit, lung failure, renal failure, or sepsis. Median logistic European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation in the cohort was 12 (interquartile range 7 to 19). During the first 30 days, 23 patients (22%) died, and 53 patients (51%) experienced MAEs. Median (interquartile range) NT-proBNP levels in survivors versus nonsurvivors were 328 pg/ml (157 to 569) versus 2,240 pg/ml (515 to 4,734; p < 0.001), and in patients without versus with MAEs, 227 pg/ml (107 to ...Continue Reading
