Objective: Noninvasive methods for follow-up of pulmonary hypertensive children are limited. The main aim of this study was to determine the cutoff levels for uric acid and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) for follow-up of Eisenmenger patients and their relationships with classical methods. To our best knowledge, this is the first study to investigate the levels of NT-proBNP and uric acid in pediatric Eisenmenger patients.
