The effects of renin inhibition have not previously been documented in established heart failure (HF). Accordingly, we investigated the acute hemodynamic and hormonal effects of a renin inhibitor (EMD 52297) in an ovine model of HF induced by rapid ventricular pacing (LVP). In seven sheep, recordings were made for 1 h before, during a 2-h infusion of renin inhibitor (RI) or vehicle, and after each infusion on the 5th and 6th day after commencing LVP. The RI (20 or vehicle was given in random order. RI infusion induced a rapid fall in plasma renin activity (PRA) and angiotensin II, reaching a nadir at 20 min. The vasodilator response was characterized by a 16% fall in mean arterial pressure (MAP), which was related to the fall in PRA (r = 0.78, P less than 0.05). MAP and PRA remained suppressed throughout the infusion period, and both returned to preinfusion levels within 10 min of terminating infusions. Left atrial pressure and plasma aldosterone were not significantly altered, while renal function was preserved despite the fall in perfusion pressure. RI has significant hemodynamic actions in a model of established HF.
