[Effect of non-pulsatile blood flow on the secretion of calcitonin-gene-related peptide in patients undergoing total cavopulmonary connection].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To study the changes of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in patients who underwent total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) and to assess the effects of non-pulsatile blood flow on the secretion function of the lung. METHODS Twenty-six patients were divided into 2 groups: study group, 13 patients who underwent extracardiac TCPC, and control… (More)
