The cystatin C value assessment of renal functional condition in patients with chronic heart failure


The article presents the results of definition of cystatin C at patients with chronic heart failure of ischemic etiology. The article explains its importance in assessing the degree of renal impairment compared with creatinine, GFR, and microalbuminuria. Results: the use of cystatin C can effectively evaluate the presence of renal dysfunction in all groupsof CHF, including subclinical renal dysfunction.
