Abstract/OtherAbstract:
ANP causes pulmonary vasodilation in some children with pulmonary hypertension secondary to congenital heart disease. In a small group of patients, ANP lowered mean pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary vascular resistance index > 20% without changing systemic vascular resistance index. Inhaled NO is an effective pulmonary vasodilator and is a more selective pulmonary vasodilator than ANP. The utility of ANP may be limited by its nonselective effects as more selective vasodilator agents are available.
