Use of Nesiritide in the Management of Acute Diastolic Heart Failure
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00083772|
Recruitment Status : Terminated
First Posted : June 3, 2004
Last Update Posted : July 31, 2012
Primary objective is to assess the effect of nesiritide in decreasing left ventricular (LV) filling pressure, defined as pulmonary artery capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) in a group of patients admitted with acute diastolic heart failure.
Secondary objectives include: improvement in symptoms, exercise tolerance, improvement in Doppler diastolic filling parameters in patients with diastolic heart failure.
