Table 3 Mean value of ln(BNP) and E/E' according to the presence or absence of left ventricular systolic dysfunction.

From: Relationship between B-type natriuretic peptide levels and echocardiographic indices of left ventricular filling pressures in post-cardiac surgery patients

  LVEF <50% LVEF ≥50%  
  (n = 16) (n = 108)  
Ln(BNP) 5.4 ± 0.5 5.5 ± 0.8 n.s.
E/E' 9.6 ± 3.7 9.4 ± 2.9 n.s.
