7 Assessment and treatment algorithm for acute decompensation of chronic heart failure (ADHF). This ladder diagram expands on the concept of the “foursquare model” (see Fig. 6) with emphasis on treatment options for each type of clinical presentation of ADHF. ACS, acute coronary syndrome; IV, intravenous; PE, pulmonary embolism; RHC, right heart catheterization; SVR, systemic vascular resistance; ICU, intensive care unit. Modified from Fonarow GC, Weber JE. Rapid clinical assessment of hemodynamic profiles and targeted treatment of patients with acutely decompensated heart failure.
A retrospective analysis of the early vasodilator trials, however, revealed a potential benefit of ISDN/H treatment in the subgroup of African-Americans, suggesting that heart failure in black people represents a different pathophysiologic state and may respond in a more favorable fashion to a nitric oxide donor (ISDN) and antioxidant (hydralazine). A-HeFT tested this hypothesis by randomizing 1050 African-American patients with heart failure (NYHA class III or IV; average LVEF 24%) receiving standard heart failure therapy (including ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, aldosterone antagonists) to a proprietary, fixed-dose combination of ISDN/H (Bidil; Nitromed, Bedford, MA, USA) [33, 36].
