Cardiac natriuretic peptides after myocardial infarction: relationship with infarct size, left ventricular function and remodelling assessed by 99mTc-sestamibi gated-single photon emission tomography.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to investigate the potential relationship between A-type (atrial) and B-type (brain) natriuretic peptides (ANP, BNP) and infarct size (IS), left ventricular (LV) function and remodelling as assessed by 99m technetium-hexakis-2-methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile (99mTc-sestamibi) gated-single photon emission tomography (G-SPET… (More)
