[Carbohydrate antigen 125 serial measurements after an admission for acute heart failure and risk of early readmission].

Med Clin (Barc). 2012 Nov;139(11):479-86, PMID: 22093405

FUNDAMENT AND OBJECTIVES: The early readmission after a hospitalization for acute heart failure (AHF) is frequent; however, factors associated are not clearly established. Plasma levels of carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) have shown to be associated with the presence of systemic congestion and increased risk of death in patients with AHF. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between CA125 levels (during hospitalization, at the first outpatient visit or their changes) and readmission for AHF at 6 months follow up.
