Vascular events in noncardiac Surgery patients cohortevaluation study (Vision) Nt-pro-BNP sub study. A large multicentre international cohort study evaluating NT-pro-BNP in major vascular events in patients undergonig noncardiac surgery

Reitze Rodseth, Bruce Biccard


We propose a sub-study within a large multicentre, international, prospective cohort study in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery to determine the incidence of major vascular events, the optimal clinical model to predict major perioperative vascular events, and the extent to which NT-proBNP measurements can assist in risk prediction. This study will be run as a sub study within the Vascular events In noncardiac Surgery patients cOhort evaluatioN (VISION) Study and will be called the VISION NT-pro-BNP Sub study
