Sažetak
We tested the hypothesis that levosimendan produced beneficial hemodynamic effects during and after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with good preoperative left ventricular function. Levosimendan at low-dose (12 mg/kg), high-dose (24 mg/kg) or placebo were administered in thirty-one patients in a randomized and four-times masked controlled study. Heart rate was not significantly different between experimental groups. Significant increases in cardiac output and left ventricular ejection fraction occurred after high-dose (p < 0.001 ; p = 0.006), and low-dose levosimendan (p = 0.001 ; p = 0.002). Both doses of levosimendan produced significant increased stroke volume and decreased systemic vascular resistance. Mean arterial pressure, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, and left ventricular endsystolic volume were not significantly different between groups. The low-dose levosimendan produced better hemodynamic response than high-dose and may be preferable in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting.
