OBJECTIVE We compared the usefulness of plasma N-terminal-pro B-type natriuretic peptide and troponin I levels for risk stratification of patients with pulmonary embolism. METHODS This was a prospective study performed in an emergency department. N-terminal-B-type natriuretic peptide assay and troponin I were performed blindly at admission in patients with pulmonary embolism confirmed by imaging tests. A complicated pulmonary embolism was defined as any of the following: death… CONTINUE READING
