It has been reported that plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels are elevated in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of this study was to investigate the change in these patients after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). In 66 patients with paroxysmal AF (PAF) and without any structural heart disease, plasma ANP and BNP levels were measured before and 3 months after successful PVI. At baseline, in 14 patients, ANP and BNP levels were elevated… CONTINUE READING
