N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide – an early independent predictor of anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy

Pascu Alina Mihaela , Bisoc Alina , Radoi Mariana

Introduction: Early prediction of anticancer therapy cardiotoxicity is essential for applying proper preventive and supporting therapeutic strategies.Objective: To evaluate plasma N-terminal fragment of pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) related to cardiac dysfunction assessed by transthoracic 2D echocardiography (2D-TTE) in patients with cancer and early onset asymptomatic anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy (AIC).Methods:...

Utility of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide in the evaluation of patients with high clinical probability of non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndrome

Pascu Alina Mihaela , Radoi Mariana , Bisoc Alina , Moga Marius Alexandru

Introduction: The study aimed to analyze the efficiency of a concomitant N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and cardiac high-sensitivity troponin T (hs-cTnT) testing in diagnosing non-ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) in patients initially negative for the standard fourth-generation assay of cardiac troponin T (cTnT), but with high clinical probability of non-ST-segment-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS).Meth...
