Abstract

Background:

This study aimed to assess the association of mid-regional (MR) pro-adrenomedullin (MR-proADM) and MR-pro-A-type natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP) in comparison to N-terminal pro-natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) with outcome in patients with aortic stenosis (AS) treated with transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).

Methods:

One hundred consecutive TAVI patients were included in this prospective study. Association of preinterventional levels of MR-proADM, MR-proANP, NT-proBNP, C-reactive protein (CrP), and high-sensitive cardiac Troponin T (hsTN) with 30-day and 1-year outcome was analyzed.

Results:

There was no association with 30-day outcome, but all markers were associated with 1-year cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. The combined biomarker analysis further improved risk prediction.

Conclusions:

In TAVI patients MR-proADM, MR-proANP, and NT-proBNP are promising predictors of adverse events within 1 year. Integration of these biomarkers into decision pathways may help to identify patients at higher risk.
