Brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP)

Fig 2 Physiological effects of B type natriuretic peptide BNP RAAS 2Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a neurohormone secreted by cardiomyocytes in the heart ventricles in response to stretching caused by increased ventricular blood volume. The main physiological effects of BNP are diuresis, natriuresis, vasodilation, inhibition of the production of renin and aldosterone.

Clinical significance:

- Chronic heart failure ( early and differential diagnosis, assessment of severity, stages of the disease, prognosis, evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment and its monitoring )

- Acute coronary syndrome ( risk stratification, prognosis, evaluation of treatment effectiveness)

- Coronary heart disease- stable angina

- Arterial hypertension

- Diabetes

- Chronic renal failure

The main directions of the use of NT-rgo BNR in clinical practice.

  1. Early diagnosis of heart failure. Screening in symptomatic patients in order to choose a specialist for further observation (cardiologist or others) and therapy.
  2. An objective evaluation of the functional class of heart failure
  3. Choose of adequate disease (heart failure or other ) therapy with nonspecific symptoms
  4. Risk stratification in patients with heart failure and acute coronary syndrome.
  5. Monitoring the effectiveness of therapy for heart failure
  6. Preoperative monitoring of patients with cardiac pathology
  7. Identification of the cardiotoxic effects of medications (oncology, psychiatry)
  8. Prevention of cardiovascular complications and nephropathy in patients with diabetes mellitus

Currently, this analysis for qualitative definition of Brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) in the blood you can pass in the laboratory of a private medical center “MedServis”
