    Abstract

    Natriuretic peptides (NPs) reduce central venous pressure in patients with chronic heart failure (cHF) despite attenuation of arterial, renal, and humoral effects. This suggests a preserved venodilator response. This study had 4 aims: to compare the venodilator effects of human NPs in patients with cHF; to assess the contribution of basal ANP and BNP levels to regulation of forearm vascular volume (FVV); to test the hypothesis that venous ANP responsiveness is preserved in cHF; and to assess the involvement of endothelial nitric oxide-synthase (eNOS) in NP-induced vascular effects.
