BACKGROUND In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) information regarding exercise release of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is sparse and data on plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) response to exercise is lacking. The aim of this study was to investigate plasma ANP and BNP response to exercise in patients with permanent AF and to assess if the response was different from the response in healthy age- and sex-matched control subjects. METHODS Plasma venous concentrations of ANP and BNP… CONTINUE READING
