Elevated plasma levels of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro-BNP (NT-pro-BNP) are seen in the setting of cardiac ischemia and are associated with adverse outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease. The mechanisms leading to natriuretic peptide elevation in patients with coronary artery disease, including the contribution of coronary atherosclerosis itself, have not been fully elucidated. Measurement of NT-pro-BNP, electron beam computed tomography, and cardiac magnetic… CONTINUE READING
