Impact of Aortic Elasticity on Plasma B-Type Natriuretic Peptide Levels in Patients with Preserved Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction

1. Abstract 1.1. Background: Measurement of plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels is used for ruling out heart failure (HF) in clinical practice. However, elevated plasma BNP levels are often observed in patients with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and with no symptoms of HF. Elevations of plasma BNP levels are multifactorial. Therefore, we …
