[Correlation between left ventricular diastolic function and plasma natriuretic peptide level in children with pulmonary artery hypertension secondary to congenital heart disease].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To study the plasma natriuretic peptide (BNP) level in children with pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) secondary to congenital heart disease (CHD) and its correlation with left ventricular diastolic function. METHODS Doppler echocardiography was performed on 95 CHD children with PAH (PAH group) and on 42 CHD without PAH (control group). The… (More)
