Title:
Cardiac troponins and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide in acute ischemic stroke do not relate to clinical prognosis. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The prognostic value of cardiac troponins and natriuretic peptide in acute ischemic stroke is uncertain. We measured cardiac troponin T (cTnT), cardiac troponin I (cTnI), and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) at admission in acute ischemic stroke patients without evident myocardial damage. METHODS: In 174 consecutive patients with MRI-confirmed ischemic stroke, serial measurements of cTnT, cTnI, and NT-proBNP were performed at 3 different time points in...    »
