Biochemical diagnosis of impaired left ventricular ejection fraction--comparison of the diagnostic accuracy of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and amino terminal proBNP (NT-proBNP).

Abstract

The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and amino terminal proBNP (NT-proBNP) for the detection of mild/moderate and severe impairment of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). In 180 subjects BNP and NT-proBNP were measured by two novel fully automated chemiluminescent assays… (More)
