OBJECTIVE To examine whether children with univentricular defects have intrinsic dysfunction in the natriuretic peptide system. METHODS We compared plasma levels of the fluid-regulating hormone vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone), aldosterone, atrial natriuretic peptide, and brain natriuretic peptide in children with congenital univentricular and biventricular defects. We enrolled 27 patients with univentricular defects and 27 patients with biventricular cardiac defects. Children who underwent… Expand
