Titel:
Accuracy of N-Terminal Probrain Natriuretic Peptide to Predict Mortality or Detect Acute Ischemia in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease 
Abstract:
Objective: The aim of the study was to assess the accuracy of N-terminal probrain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) to predict mortality or detect acute ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Methods: This study included 1,552 patients with stable (n = 1,059) or unstable (n = 493) CAD undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. NT-proBNP was measured before percutaneous coronary intervention. The primary endpoint of the study was mortality. Patients were followed for 3.6 years...    »
