Atrial natriuretic peptide and bronchial hyperresponsiveness in patients with mitral stenosis.

Abstract

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) has been reported to have protective effects against methacholine-induced bronchoconstriction in asthmatics. The aim of the study was to evaluate the relationship between plasma ANP levels and bronchial responsiveness to methacholine in patients with mitral stenosis. In 12 patients with moderate mitral stenosis, age 35-58… (More)
