Abstract


Objective: To investigate the effects and safety of recombinant human brain natriuretic peptide (rhBNP) in the treatment of elderly acute myocardial infarction induced cardiac failure.

Methods: One hundred and forty-six patients who were diagnosed as elderly acute myocardial infarction induced cardiac failure in the hospital from July 2014 to July 2015 were selected. They were divided into a test group and a control group, 73 each. Patients in both groups were given conventional treatment such as stabilization of atherosclerotic plaques, anti-platelet and remodeling and reversion of myocardium. The curative effects and the incidence of adverse reactions of the two groups were observed.

Results: The overall efficacy of the test group and the control group was 87.7% and 65.8% respectively, and the difference had statistical significance (P<0.05). The heart rate, urine volume, n-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide level and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of both groups significantly improved after treatment, and the improvement of the test group was superior to that of the control group (P<0.05). The serum creatinine of the test group remarkably reduced after treatment (P<0.05). The incidence of hypotension and arrhythmia of the test group was lower than that of the control group during hospitalization period (P<0.05).

Conclusion: rhBNP can effectively relieve the clinical symptoms, cardiac function indexes and hemodynamic indexes of patients with elderly acute myocardial infarction induced cardiac failure, with a high safety. It can be extensively applied in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction in combination with cardiac failure.
