BACKGROUNDS B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro-BNP (NTproBNP) levels showed frequent discrepancies in individual patients. OBJECTIVES The aims were 1) to compare the abilities of BNP and NTproBNP for the detection of left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) or diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) in the symptomatic patients, and 2) to assess the direct correlation and its independent determinants between them. METHODS 1032 patients with dyspnea underwent BNP and NTproBNP… CONTINUE READING
