Impact of preoperative nesiritide on renal function after mitral valve surgery


Salzberg, S P; Emmert, M Y; Vassalotti, J; Nandiwada, D R; Adams, D H (2009). Impact of preoperative nesiritide on renal function after mitral valve surgery. The Heart Surgery Forum, 12(4):E217-E218.

Abstract

Nesiritide, a recombinant B-type natriuretic peptide used for the intravenous treatment of acute decompensated congestive heart failure. Concerns have been raised about the long-term use of nesiritide, but data is scarce regarding its use in acute congestive heart failure and during cardiac surgery. We conducted a retrospective data review to address the safety of nesiritide for pretreatment of patients undergoing mitral valve surgery.
