Researchers from Hospital Germans Trias have developed a diagnostic tool that accurately predicts the risk of death for patients with heart failure. The calculator, called BCN Bio-HF Calculator, performs prognosis based not only traditional risk variables, as having advanced age, being male or hypertension, but also the concentration three biomarkers in the blood indicating that the muscle heart is suffering.
The calculator has been developed in collaboration with researchers from Institut Hospital del Mar d’Investigacions Mèdiques (IMIM).
Dr. Bayes-Genis and Dr. Lupón were interviewed by El Periódico.
