The acute haemodynamic effects of intravenous enalaprilic acid (MK422) in patients with left ventricular dysfunction.


Intravenous enalaprilic acid (2.5 mg) was given to 11 patients with stable cardiac failure (NYHA functional class II-IV). Reductions in mean right atrial, pulmonary artery and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure of 25%, 18% and 30% respectively (P less than 0.01), were observed. Cardiac output rose by 13% (NS) and mean blood pressure fell by 20% (P less than… (More)
