Hyposecretion of atrial natriuretic peptide due to associated right atrial infarction in a patient with acute right ventricular infarction?

Author information

Department of Internal Medicine, National Cardiovascular Center, Osaka, Japan.


A patient with acute right ventricular infarction who showed hyposecretion of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in spite of abnormally high right atrial pressure and who died of a severe low cardiac output syndrome is reported. Right atrial infarction, which was proven at autopsy, may be responsible for this endocrine failure.
