PurposeRelative arginine vasopressin (AVP) deficiency after pediatric cardiac surgery has recently been described. Copeptin, a more stable and easily measured product of pro-AVP processing, may be a means of identifying these patients. We aimed to determine if copeptin was correlated with AVP in these children and whether it can be a surrogate marker of relative AVP deficiency.MethodsPatients <6 years of age with basic Aristotle scores ≥7 requiring surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass were… Expand
Copeptin - prognostic relevance as a perioperative marker in pediatric cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Copeptin showed a tendency to predict the clinical outcome of patients after congenital heart surgery, and patients with higher copeptin levels, underwent more complex procedures, had longer cardiopulmonary bypass times, required more catecholamine support, needed longer time of invasive ventilation, and had a longer overall stay and ICU stay. Expand
Effect of corticosteroids on arginine vasopressin after pediatric cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Children who receive multiple doses of corticosteroids after cardiac surgery, regardless of potency, are likely to have low endogenous AVP concentrations, and children who remain unstable despite cortICosteroids may respond favorably to exogenous AVP therapy. Expand
Copeptin (CTproAVP) - A Biomarker of a Circulatory Impairment in Liver Transplant Recipients? A Prospective, Observational Study.
TLDR
It cannot be concluded that copeptin is a biomarker of a circulatory impairment in patients with transplanted liver in the perioperative period, as preoperative copeptin levels are elevated in most LT recipients and remain elevated for 21 days after surgery. Expand
Copeptin as a novel biomarker in nocturnal enuresis.
TLDR
The presence of decreased levels of copeptin in patients with NE compared with healthy patients is demonstrated and to the authors' knowledge, this is the first report assessing the relationship between copeptin and NE. Expand
Distribution of plasma copeptin levels and influence of obesity in children and adolescents
TLDR
The measurement of copeptin could represent a useful tool for the diagnostic pathway of dysnatremic conditions, but its interpretation should take into consideration the state of hydration. Expand
Copeptin: A Neuroendocrine Biomarker in Acute Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
The biochemical and physiological basics of copeptin beside its clinical diagnostic value in AMI according to results and conclusions of some studies carried out on copeptin in AMi diagnostic field are discussed. Expand
Study of copeptin and brain natriuretic peptide in patients with thyroid dysfunction: relation to cardiovascular performance
TLDR
Serum copeptin and BNP were significantly increased in hypothyroid patients, whereas serum copeptin was significantly decreased in hyperthyroid patients. Expand
Ct-proAVP is Not a Good Predictor of Vasopressor Need in Septic Shock
TLDR
Patients with septic shock and sustained need of vasopressors do not seem to present a relative AVP deficiency, and the subgroup of patients that may benefit from AVP supplementation still needs to be identified in sepsis. Expand
The Clinical Value of Copeptin in Acute Coronary Syndrome
TLDR
Copeptin as a single marker has diagnostic value being superior to cTn-I within the first three hours after acute chest pain within the early rule out of AMI. Expand

Copeptin and arginine vasopressin concentrations in critically ill patients.
TLDR
The ratio of copeptin/AVP plasma concentrations is increased in patients with sepsis and SIRS, suggesting that copeptin may overestimate AVP plasma concentration in these patients. Expand
POSTOPERATIVE VASOPRESSIN AND COPEPTIN LEVELS IN NONCARDIAC SURGERY PATIENTS: A PROSPECTIVE CONTROLLED TRIAL
TLDR
The postoperative AVP response in noncardiac surgery patients seems well maintained and the possibility that AVP plays a contributory role in the failure to restore vascular tone in patients with vasodilatory shock cannot be excluded but seems less important than in septic or postcardiotomy shock. Expand
Relative deficiency of arginine vasopressin in children after cardiopulmonary bypass*
TLDR
In some children undergoing open heart surgery, plasma arginine vasopressin concentration is relatively low at baseline and remains low after cardiopulmonary bypass regardless of hemodynamic stability and serum osmolality. Expand
The vasopressin and copeptin response in patients with vasodilatory shock after cardiac surgery: a prospective, controlled study
TLDR
The hypothesis that inadequately low AVP plasma levels contribute to the failure to restore vascular tone in vasodilatory shock after cardiac surgery is supported. Expand
Levels of vasopressin in children undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass*
TLDR
Children do not have deficient endogenous levels of vasopressin following bypass, and lower levels are not associated with hypotension, although a few persistently hypotensive patients had high levels subsequent to bypass. Expand
Intravenous arginine-vasopressin in children with vasodilatory shock after cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Infants and children with low blood pressure and adequate cardiac function after cardiac surgery respond to the pressor action of exogenous AVP. Expand
Plasma copeptin levels before and during exogenous arginine vasopressin infusion in patients with advanced vasodilatory shock.
TLDR
Plasma copeptin levels are elevated in patients with advanced vasodilatory shock and decrease during exogenous AVP therapy, suggesting suppression of the endogenous AVP system. Expand
Arginine-vasopressin in neonates with vasodilatory shock after cardiopulmonary bypass
TLDR
In neonates with vasodilatory shock after cardiopulmonary bypass AVP is a potent agent to increase blood pressure when traditional vasopressors are failing. Expand
Assay for the measurement of copeptin, a stable peptide derived from the precursor of vasopressin.
TLDR
Copeptin is stable for days after blood withdrawal and can be quickly and easily measured, and may be a useful alternative to direct measurement of AVP concentration. Expand
Children undergoing heart transplant are at increased risk for postoperative vasodilatory shock*
TLDR
Recognition that the overall incidence of post-CPB VDS is low—except in the HT/VAD population—may help guide therapy in the pediatric post- CPB patient, as well as identify children who undergo HT or VAD placement are at high risk for developing VDS. Expand
