Vasopressin in the treatment of milrinone-induced hypotension in severe heart failure

Gold, J; Cullinane, S; Chen, J; Seo, S; Oz, M C; Oliver, J A; Landry, D W
The use of phosphodiesterase inhibitors such as milrinone in the treatment of severe heart failure is frequently restricted because they cause vasodilation and hypotension. In patients with decompensated heart failure with hypotension after treatment with milrinone, low doses of vasopressin restored blood pressure without inhibiting the inotropic effect of milrinone.
