Comparison of haemodynamic effects of phentolamine, sodium nitroprusside, and glyceryl trinitrate in acute myocardial infarction.


The effects of the commonly employed systemic vasodilators phentolamine, nitroprusside, and intravenous glyceryl trinitrate on cardiac performance, peripheral resistance, and vascular capacitance, as judged by changes in left ventricular filling pressure, were compared in 29 patients studied within 24 hours after the onset of acute myocardial infarction.
