The aim of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in the development of acute kidney injury (AKI) and 6-month all-cause mortality after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in a modest-risk population.
