The mechanisms responsible for the natriuresis encountered in the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) are not fully understood. The present study explores the role of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF). Eight subjects unable to excrete ingested free water normally (three patients with SIADH and five healthy humans after(More)
The pathogenesis of Bartter's syndrome remains uncertain. The prevailing theory postulates a defect in salt reabsorption, more frequently described in the thick ascending limb of Henle's loop. The patient we studied presents a normal urinary concentration capacity associated with impaired dilution, a free water clearance at the lower end of normal (5.4(More)
It has been recently suggested that atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) might be involved in the physiological regulation of pulmonary circulation. Therefore, we investigated the pulmonary hemodynamic response to 20-min infusions of 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2 micrograms kg-1 min-1 of alpha human ANF in five dogs alternatively ventilated with hyperoxic (FIO2 0.4) and(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to investigate whether atrial natriuretic peptides have a physiological role in regulation of the pulmonary circulation. DESIGN Plasma concentrations of immunoreactive atrial natriuretic peptide and guanosine-3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) were measured during evaluation of pulmonary vascular tone by multipoint(More)
