Correlation Between N-terminal Pro Brain Natriuretic Peptide and Right Ventricular Performance Measured by Doppler Echocardiography after Successful Percutaneous Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty

Abstract

Mitral stenosis leads to a passive rise of both pulmonary venous and arterial pressures which cause Right Ventricular (RV) pressure overload and RV failure. Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) increases in cases of RV pressure or volume overload. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between N-terminal proBNP (NT-Pro BNP) and echocardiographic… (More)
