Levosimendan is a novel drug developed for treatment of decompensated heart failure. Levosimendan is a calcium sensitizer that increases contractile force of the myocardium by enhancing the sensitivity of myofilaments to calcium without increasing intracellular calcium concentration. The present study was carried out to investigate whether levosimendan… CONTINUE READING
