INTRODUCTION Circulating cardiac natriuretic peptides play an important role in maintaining volume homeostasis, especially during conditions affecting hemodynamics. During atrial fibrillation (AF), levels of plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) becomes elevated. The aim of this study was to gather information about gene expression of the natriuretic peptide system on the atrial level in patients with AF. METHODS AND RESULTS Right atrial appendages of 36 patients with either paroxysmal or… CONTINUE READING
