We read with great interest the recent article by Choi on the optimal time of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) sampling for the prediction of left ventricular (LV) remodelling after myocardial infarction (MI). Indeed, as underscored by Choi , LV remodelling remains a significant clinical problem in the modern era of MI management. In addition, BNP is currently the sole biomarker that has been convincingly associated with LV remodelling in multiple studies (reviewed in Fertin ). It is therefore important to determine the best window of time for its determination in clinical practice.
