The aim of this study was to compare the effects of prostacyclin on central hemodynamics and right ventricular function to the more widely used vasodilators, sodium nitroprusside and nitroglycerin, and to investigate whether prostacyclin is more selective to the pulmonary vascular bed compared to sodium nitroprusside and nitroglycerin in patients after heart transplantation. Hemodynamic measurements were made after the operation in the intensive care unit with a pulmonary artery fast-response… CONTINUE READING
