Association of Natriuretic Peptide Levels After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement With Subsequent Clinical Outcomes. JAMA cardiology. 2020 Jul 15. PMID: 32667623 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC7364343
Among those with aortic stenosis, natriuretic peptide levels can provide risk stratification, predict symptom onset, and aid decisions regarding the timing of valve replacement. Less is known about the prognostic significance and potential clinical utility of natriuretic peptide levels measured after valve replacement.
