Atrial natriuretic peptide production in association with nonimmune fetal hydrops.

PMID:  2971318     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The presence and elevation of atrial natriuretic peptide in fetuses has not previously been demonstrated. This study of right atrial pacing in fetal lambs demonstrated a threefold to fourfold increase in atrial natriuretic peptide during the production of fetal hydrops. Its rate of return to a normal level paralleled the clearance of fetal hydrops. Its possible role in fetal cardiovascular hemodynamics is discussed.
