Pirbuterol hydrochloride, an orally effective beta-adrenergic agonist, improves hemodynamic abnormalities in patients with congestive heart failure, but its effects on myocardial oxygen consumption (MVO2) and coronary blood flow have not been characterized. We studied the effects of 20-30 mg of oral pirbuterol on myocardial metabolic and hemodynamic parameters in 12 patients (six with coronary artery disease) with chronic CHF refractory to standard medical therapy. Pirbuterol induced an… CONTINUE READING
