Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a cardiac ventricular hormone that may be a sensitive and specific marker of changes in ventricular function. In a prospective, randomised open trial with 16 patients followed for 6 months after first Q wave anterior myocardial infarction we set out to determine: whether BNP concentrations are raised acutely, the effect on circulating BNP of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition, how BNP and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) concentrations compared as… CONTINUE READING
