Nesiritide Nesiritide is the recombinant form of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and is the newest vasodilator approved for treatment of ADHF. This drug functions in a fashion similar to endogenous BNP, which is produced by the cardiac ventricles when filling pressures and wall stress are elevated. Nesiritide produces arterial and venous vasodilation via the cGMP pathway by binding to vascular and endothelial receptors. In addition to its vasodilatory properties, nesiritide has a modest effect on the renal excretion of salt and water .
In the recently reported Follow-Up Serial Infusions of Nesiritide for the Management of Patients with Heart Failure (FUSION II) trial, 30 C A R DI AC RE S YNCHRONI Z AT I ON T HE R APY patients with advanced heart failure were prospectively randomized to intermittent outpatient infusions of nesiritide or placebo over 12 weeks. While there was no difference in the primary endpoint of death, cardiovascular or renal hospitalization with nesiritide compared to placebo, there was also no apparent safety hazard with respect to renal function or mortality related to nesiritide in this setting.
If aspirin therapy is indicated, most clinicians will administer low doses in patients requiring ACE inhibitors. Angiotensin receptor blockers The concept of enhanced blockade of the RAAS with the addition of a direct angiotensin II recep- 20 C A R DI AC RE S YNCHRONI Z AT I ON T HE R APY tor (AT1) blocking agent is attractive and has been evaluated in multiple trials. Theoretically, blockade of the AT1 receptor would address the potentially detrimental effect of ACE escape and therefore result in significantly less angiotensin II activity at the receptor, less aldosterone production (the major stimulus being angiotensin II), and preservation of theoretical benefits from AT2 agonism (Fig.
