NPs can be used To detect subset of asymptomatic with subtle LV dysfunction for further evaluation and earlier referral for intervention and its correlation with echocardiographic finding.
Each patient included in the study will undergo:
Analysis of patient symptoms and signs (dyspnea , orthopnea , Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, lower limb edema , tachypalpitations,…etc )
2. Clinical examination:
Urea and creatinine . b) ECG : for exclusion of atrial fibrillation and other arrythmias. 2D Transthorathic Echocardiography (TTE) Evaluation of valve morphology and thickness , gradients and valve area , regurgitant lesions and its severity.
Evaluation of internal cardiac dimensions and function. 5- Natriuretic peptides: as a useful screening tool to differentiate symptomatic and asymptomatic patients.
