B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) is widely used in the treatment of early-stage heart failure and coronary heart disease. In this study, the association of plasma BNP concentration with myocardial infarct (MI) size in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was investigated. Eighty patients with AMI were enrolled in the MI group and 30 healthy volunteers were selected as the control group.
