Prognostic value of cardiac metaiodobenzylguanidine imaging in patients with heart failure.
The prognostic value of 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) imaging was compared with that of other noninvasive cardiac imaging indices in ninety patients (mean age = 52 +/- 7 yr) suffering fromExpand

Usefulness of plasma B-type natriuretic peptide in predicting recurrence of atrial fibrillation one year after external cardioversion.
After successful external cardioversion, the rate of recurrence of atrial fibrillation remains high. The hypothesis that plasma B-type natriuretic peptide could predict the recurrence of atrialExpand
