Abstract

Background: NT-proBNP is a useful biomarker in the management of heart failure. However, there is conflicting evidence for the prognostic value of NT-ProBNP in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Objectives: (1) To explore the association between NT-proBNP and 1-year cardiac related mortality in AMI patients. (2) To explore the association between NT-proBNP and 1-year risk of sudden cardiac death or ventricular arrhythmia, readmission for heart failure, readmission for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and stroke. Methods: We conducted a multicenter, prospective observational study recruiting patients presenting with AMI between 1-August2016 to 31-January-2017, involving 1 cardiology referral center and 4 non-cardiology hospitals. NT-proBNP levels (Alere Triage®, US) were measured within 24 hours of AMI diagnosis. Patients were followed-up for 1 year.
