The relationship between brain natriuretic peptide and cardiopulmonary bypass has not been examined sufficiently In this study, we prospectively examined brain natriuretic peptide levels in the plasma of 26 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. Brain natriuretic peptide measurements were carried out at 4 times: preoperatively, 3 hours after institution of cross-clamping, 24 hours after institution of cross-clamping, and on the 5th postoperative day. In addition, we measured individual variables and compared them to brain natriuretic peptide levels.
