Sample text

The presence of coronary artery disease in patients with mitral or aortic valve disease worsens the long-term prognosis and mitral regurgitation due to ischemic heart disease is associated with an increased mortality. Drug Therapy Modern drug therapy for valvular heart disease may include b-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and digitalis for heart rate control, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, and vasodilators to control blood pressure and afterload and diuretics, inotropes and vasodilators as needed to control heart failure.

A reflex increase in heart rate, itself decreases cardiac output. If necessary, systemic blood pressure and systemic vascular resistance can be maintained with sympathomimetic drugs such as ephedrine and phenylephrine, the latter being preferable because it does not affect heart rate. Pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular failure may be precipitated by numerous factors, including hypercarbia, hypoxemia, lung hyperinflation, and an increase in lung water. Right ventricular failure may require support with inotropic and pulmonary vasodilating drugs.

Atropine, infusion of dobutamine, cardiac pacing, or administration of a coronary vasodilator such as adenosine and dipyridamole creates cardiac stress. After stress is induced, either echocardiography to assess myocardial function or radionuclide imaging to assess myocardial perfusion is performed.  b–Blockers are the principal drug treatment for patients with angina pectoris. Long-term administration of bblockers decreases the risk of death and myocardial reinfarction in patients who have had an MI, presumably by decreasing myocardial oxygen demand.
