Abstract

We determined the time-course of the release of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in six patients undergoing coronary artery bypass (CAD) and eight patients undergoing valve replacement for mitral stenosis (MS). Before CPB, the arterial ANF was significantly higher in MS patients than in CAD patients (243 ± 38 and 29±5.8pg/ml respectively, P
