BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to prospectively study whether a combination of markers for myocardial cell injury and left ventricular overload at admission can reliably risk stratify patients hospitalized for chronic heart failure (CHF). METHODS AND RESULTS Serum concentrations of heart-type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) and plasma concentrations of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) were measured at admission in 186 consecutive patients hospitalized for CHF. During a mean… CONTINUE READING
