  • Elevated blood urea nitrogen-to-creatinine Ratio increased the risk of hospitalization and all-cause death in patients with chronic heart failure
    Clinical Research in Cardiology, 2009
    Co-Authors: Chia-lun Chao, Kuo-liong Chien, Yi-lwun Ho, Yen-wen Wu, Nai-kuan Chou, Shoei-shen Wang, Ching-yi Chen, Ming-fong Chen

    Abstract:

    Objectives To examine the relationship between blood urea nitrogen (BUN)-to-creatinine Ratio and the prognosis of chronic heart failure (HF). Methods We analyzed the data from the cohort of 243 adult patients with chronic HF followed at the HF clinic in a tertiary medical center between December 2003 and June 2006. Primary endpoints were the events of all-cause death and first hospitalization for HF. Results During a median follow-up of 1.2 years, 72 events were recorded with an event rate of 25.7 events per 100 person-years. In multivariate-adjusted Cox regression models, elevated BUN-to-creatinine Ratio was associated with a heightened risk of hospitalization and all-cause death [hazard Ratio (HR), 1.24; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.02–1.51]. The relationship remained after adjusting for glomerular filtRation rate (GFR) (HR, 1.23; 95% CI, 1.01–1.51). There was a linear trend toward increasing risks of adverse outcomes across the tertiles of BUN-to-creatinine Ratio ( P  = 0.02). The coexisting presence of the third tertile of BUN-to-creatinine Ratio and GFR
