N-Terminal Pro–B-Type Natriuretic Peptide Identifies Patients With Chest Pain at High Long-Term Cardiovascular Risk

Study Questions:

Are elevated levels of N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and C-reactive protein (CRP) predictive of long-term cardiovascular (CV) risk in patients who present with chest pain, even if they rule out for acute coronary syndrome (ACS)?
