Natriuretic Peptides - Predictors of In-hospital and Long-term Major Adverse Cardiac Events After Emergency Surgery?
Prospective Study to Evaluate the Predictive Value of Brain Natriuretic Peptides for Adverse Long-term Cardiac Outcome

The investigators hypothesize that the level of perioperative natriuretic peptides is associated with in-hospital and long term major adverse cardiac events.

The purpose of the study is to measure levels of brain natriuretic peptides before and after urgent non-cardiac surgery and to evaluate their predictive value for adverse long-term outcome.
