Vasopressin V1-Receptor Inhibition in Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

Abstract

Arginine vasopressin is elevated in congestive heart failure. To determine the efrect of arginine vasopressin upon systemic hemodynamics and regional blood flows, we administered the specific inhibitor of the vascular action of vasopressin [1-(p-mercapto-f,i3-cyclopentamethylenepropionic acid),2-(0-methyl)-tyrosine]-arginine vasopressin [d(CH2)5Tyr(Me)AVP… (More)
