The acute hemodynamic effects of intravenously administered celiprolol and propranolol were compared in 18 patients, 12 with coronary obstruction in the presence or absence of reduced LV function and six with no significant cardiac disease. The study was performed using a single blind, randomized design with celiprolol (0.07 and 0.14 mg/kg) and propranolol (0.07 mg/kg) in six patients per treatment group. The hemodynamic parameters obtained via right and left heart catheterization were measured at baseline and at 5 and 10 min after drug infusion (1.0 mg/min). Propranolol produced a significant fall in left ventricular Vmax, left ventricular dP/dt and cardiac output. In contrast, celiprolol either caused no change or significantly increased these parameters. These results indicate that celiprolol has an acute hemodynamic profile which differs significantly from that of propranolol.
