Improved left ventricular function after short-term treatment with fructose-1,6-diphosphate: echocardiographic study in chronic ischemic heart disease and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.


The effect of fructose-1,6-diphosphate (FDP) on left ventricular function was assessed in seven patients with chronic ischemic heart disease and eight patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. In a crossover study design each patient received 10 gm of FDP or saline placebo intravenously for three days. An M-mode echocardiographic assessment of left… (More)
