#526 Association Between Activin A & NT-pro-BNP in Carcinoid Heart Disease and Intestinal Desmoplasia in Patients with Metastatic Midgut and Pelvic NET

Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) involves cardiac valvular fibrosis and volume overload. N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) is released by the myocardium in response to increased wall stress in CHD. Activin A is a member of the TGF-ß superfamily involved in fibrogenesis.
