Objectives To analysis the effect of milrinone on cor pulmonale with heart failure.
Methods 212 patients with cor pulmonale with heart failure were separated into 2 groups randomly: 106 patients of control group were treated with routine therapy, while on this basis, 106 patients of treatment group were given milrinone additionally. Symptoms and signs of heart failure, lung function and adverse side effect were observed.
Results The lung function and heat function of the treatment group were improved much better. It can quickly improve respiratory distress in cor pulmonale with acute heart failure patients. The clinic effective rate of the treatment group was 94.34%, the difference between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.05).
Conclusions Milrinone would be effective in treating cor pulmonale with heart failure without adverse side effect.
