    Background: B-type natriuretic peptide is released from the cardiac ventricles in response to increased wall tension. Methods: We conducted a prospective study of 1586 patients who came to the emergency department with acute dyspnea and whose B-type natriuretic peptide was measured with a...

    Objective: Preexisting renal failure diminishes the excretion of N-Terminal Pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP), therefore limits the diagnostic value of this peptide for concomitant heart failure. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between NT-proBNP and the stages of...
