The effect of torasemide and furosemide therapy was compared in 50 patients who had chronic heart failure and symptoms [NYHA class II-III] despite long-term therapy with both low-dose furosemide and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. In this randomized 6-month, open-label trial, baseline and follow-up echocardiograms and neurohumoral assays were obtained in 25 group F patients (continued same dose of oral furosemide at 20-40 mg/day) and in 25 group T patients (received torasemide at 4-8… CONTINUE READING
