BACKGROUND: Risk factors are important in cardiovascular (CV) medicine for risk stratification of patients. We aimed to compare the traditional risk factors to clinical variables for the prediction of secondary cardiovascular events. METHODS AND RESULTS: For this study, 3229 patients with known coronary artery disease (CAD) were included. We calculated whether the traditional risk factors, diabetes mellitus, increased LDL/HDL ratio, arterial hypertension and smoking alone and in combination with the clinical variables, ejection fraction, creatinine clearance, multi-vessel disease and CRP concentration predict the outcome cardiovascular death or non-fatal myocardial infarction (N = 432) during the mean follow-up time of 4...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a complex, frequent and serious clinical problem with high rate of mortality. Therefore there is a serious need for early detection of AKI, with a tendency to detect early stage--RISK dut to start with therapy as soon as possible and prevent irreversible changes in renal function. Study's purposes were to explore the rhythm of urine neutrophile gelatinase associated lipocalin (urine NGAL) concentration changes before and after cardiovascular surgery and compare results of urine NGAL values with results of serum creatinine and creatinine clearance as main diagnostic indicators of renal function in order to define role of urine NGAL biomarker in early diagnosis of acute kidney injure...

Antineoplastic chemotherapy is associated with nephrotoxic side effects. Data on nephrotoxicity in childhood cancer are scanty, in part because of the difficulties in obtaining reliable markers of glomerular function. We used serum cystatin C (cysC) to assess glomerular function. CysC was compared with serum creatinine concentration (S(Cr)), the endogenous creatinine clearence ( C(Cr)), and the calculated Counahan formula ( C(Counahan)) in children with leukemia and solid tumors. CysC was measured by particle-enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay...
