Fluid management is of paramount importance in the treatment strategy of heart failure (HF), but the therapeutic efficacy of loop diuretic-based treatment for HF patients is limited by insufficient response and adverse effects. Clinical data establishing the efficacy and safety of tolvaptan, a selective oral vasopressin V2 receptor antagonist that induces aquaresis, have recently been accumulated over 3 years of daily clinical experience in Japan. Intravenous infusion of carperitide, a synthetic α-human atrial natriuretic peptide, has also been widely used as acute-phase therapy for acute decompensated HF in Japan. Combination therapy using loop diuretics, tolvaptan, and carperitide with differing and complementary mechanisms of action may maximize therapeutic activity, to minimize the dosage of loop diuretics and thereby reduce the adverse effects not only for volume removal but also for the stability of cardiorenal hemodynamics.
