Utility of B-type natriuretic peptides and cardiac troponins for population screening regarding cardiac abnormalities.

Abstract

AIMS The increasing importance of cardiac disease has generated an interest in improved screening strategies regarding preclinical cardiac abnormalities and employing measurement of circulating biomarkers. This review focuses on the utility of the B-type natriuretic peptides (NP) and the cardiac troponins (cTns) for this purpose. RESULTS Both the NPs and… (More)
