We analyzed the natriuretic peptide type B (BNP) and A (ANP) levels in the plasma of 38 children with stable functionally univentricular heart defects, 10 of whom had undergone the first palliative step (Shunt), 13 of whom had undergone the second palliative step (Glenn), and 15 of whom had completed total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC). The levels of BNP and ANP were significantly higher after the first palliative step, 31.6 ng/l (8.3–122) (median and range) and 101.2 ng/l (17.1–203… CONTINUE READING
