OBJECTIVES This study was designed to evaluate B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) for risk assessment and clinical decision making over a range of cut points, alone and with cardiac troponin I (cTnI), in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACS). BACKGROUND B-type natriuretic peptide holds promise for risk stratification. Additional evidence regarding optimal decision limits, use in combination with troponin, and use in targeting therapy is needed before acceptance into… CONTINUE READING
