Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Levosimendan increases the sensitivity of the heart to calcium and consequently exerts positive inotropic effects. Levosimendan is indicated in acutely decompensated severe congestive heart failure. We report that levosimendan infusion may induce myocardial ischemia in patients with acute heart failure.
