The efficacy of orally administered isosorbide dinitrate (IS) has been questioned. Recently vasodilators have been shown to lower left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) and raise cardiac output in heart failure. In the present study oral IS was evaluated in 12 patients with high LVFP due to heart failure. After right heart catheterization, patients with LVFP > 14 mm Hg were randomized double-blind to receive either 20 mg IS
