Long-term prognostic value for patients with chronic heart failure of estimated glomerular filtration rate calculated with the new CKD-EPI equations containing cystatin C.

Clin. Chem.. 2014 Mar;60(3):481-9, PMID: 24255081

Correct estimation of renal function is crucial in assessing prognosis of patients with heart failure (HF). Recently, two new equations have been proposed to calculate estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) with cystatin C alone or both creatinine and cystatin C. We assessed the prognostic value of eGFR estimated by these new equations in outpatients with HF.
