OBJECTIVES The aim of this multicenter study was to evaluate the prognostic impact of a therapeutic strategy using plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels. BACKGROUND The prognosis of chronic heart failure (CHF) remains poor, even among patients treated in specialized departments. METHODS A total of 220 New York Heart Association functional class II to III patients considered optimally treated with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs), beta-blockers, and diuretics by CHF… CONTINUE READING
