BACKGROUND Brain natriuretic peptide is a novel natriuretic peptide that is secreted predominantly from the ventricles, and its plasma levels have been shown to be markedly increased in patients with chronic congestive heart failure. This study was designed to examine the plasma levels of brain natriuretic peptide as well as atrial natriuretic peptide in patients with acute myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS We examined the plasma levels of brain natriuretic peptide as well as atrial… CONTINUE READING
