Sixteen patients with heart failure who underwent right heart catherization were studied with regard to plasma natriuretic peptide levels and hemodynamic parameters at rest and immediately after symptom-limited ergometry. Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) were measured and correlated with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), mean pulmonary arterial pressure (MPAP), pulmonary arterial wedge pressure (PAWP) and cardiac index (CI). Compared to normal… CONTINUE READING
