Last decades of evidence medicine biomarkers are found for the routine management of patients in the diagnostic process and prognosis. Chronic hear failure represents clinical condition with complex pathophysiology. In the clinical practice estimation of natriuretic peptides appears to be the gold standard among these patients.
