Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to cardiovascular death or hospitalization [ Time Frame: 6 Months Follow-Up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to all cause death or hospitalization [ Time Frame: 6 Months Follow-Up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 304
Study Start Date: June 2010
Study Completion Date: January 2012
Primary Completion Date: January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Patients admitted for acute decompensated heart failure are included in the study. After gaining informed consent, concentrations of high-sensitivity troponin on admission and on discharge are assessed. 6 months after discharged, the incidence of clinical endpoint (mortality of all cause and of cardiovascular cause, hospitalization) is assessed by telephone contact to the patient and/or the physician. The aim of the study is to investigate the prognostic value of high-sensitivity troponin concentration for predicting death and re-hospitalization.
