N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide on admission in patients with acute myocardial infarction and correlation with scintigraphic infarct size, efficacy of reperfusion, and prognosis.

Abstract

We investigated whether N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) that was measured on admission in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) predicts the efficacy of reperfusion or whether NT-pro-BNP provides prognostic information independent of infarct size as estimated by single-photon emission computed tomographic scintigraphy.
