BACKGROUND N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) has been associated with important risk factors for contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). However, few studies have investigated the predictive value of NT-proBNP itself. This study investigated whether levels of preprocedural NT-proBNP could predict CIN after elective coronary angiography as effectively as the Mehran CIN score. METHODS AND RESULTS We retrospectively observed 2248 patients who underwent elective coronary… CONTINUE READING
