Effect of Levosimendan in Patients with Severe Systolic Heart Failure and Worsening Renal Function
(ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS CARDIOLOGIA, 2012)
Background: Levosimendan, a calcium sensitizer, increases the sensitivity of the heart to calcium, thus increasing myocardial contractility without a rise in intracellular calcium. It was recently shown that levosimendan ...
Levosimendan improves renal function in patients with acute decompensated heart failure: Comparison with dobutamine
Background Levosimendan is a relatively new cardiac inotropic agent with calcium sensitizing activity. This study was conducted to investigate the effects of levosimendan (L) and dobutamine (D) on renal function in patients ...
Efficacy of levosimendan in patients with chronic heart failure: Does rhythm matter?
(AVES YAYINCILIK, 2010)
Objective: Leyosimendan is a relatively new inotropic agent. Unlike other inotropic agents, Levosimendan does not increase cellular calcium intake, so that, does not cause intracellular calcium overload and related ...
Acute Effects of Levosimendan and Dobutamine on QRS Duration in Patients with Heart Failure
(ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS CARDIOLOGIA, 2010)
Background: Levosimendan is a novel inotropic agent that enhances cardiac contractility without increasing cellular calcium intake, so that it is not supposed to cause intracellular calcium overload and related arrhythmias. ...
