Table 4 Comparison of significant predictor’s characteristics that predict unfavorable neurologic outcome at hospital discharge after subarachnoid hemorrhage

From: An observational study of the association between microalbuminuria and increased N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage

Variables Threshold value Sensitivity (95 % CI) (%) Specificity (95 % CI) (%) Likelihood ratio (95 % CI)
Hunt-Hess grade >3 58 (52–64) 92 (89–95) 7.2 (4.0–13.0)
Highest ACR (mg/g) >280 63 (56–69) 97 (95–99) 23.1 (12.7–42.1)
GCS score on admission <10 42 (36–48) 97 (95–99) 15.4 (9.5–25.0)
Lowest GCS score <9 42 (33–67) 97 (95–99) 15.4 (9.5–25.0)
Highest VMACR (mg/g) >14 38 (32–44) 97 (95–99) 13.9 (8.7–22.3)
  1. Unfavorable outcome (Glasgow Outcome Scale: death, persistent vegetative state, and severe disability)
  2. CI confidence interval, ACR urinary albumin/creatinine ratio, GCS Glasgow Coma Scale, VMACR urinary vanillylmandelic acid/creatinine ratio
