Abstract

We examined the diuretic effects of phosphodiesterase inhibitors in heart failure patients with and without renal failure. We found that, despite the improvement in central hemodynamics, phosphodiesterase inhibitors do not necessarily facilitate diuresis in heart failure in patients with concomitant renal failure.
