Molsidomine, a new venous vasodilator, was studied in 40 cases of stable angina by ergometric stress testing. 1. In 10 patients, one hour after 2 mg molsidomine sublingually, the work inducing a 1 mm ST depression (WST 1) increased by 94% (p less than 0,05), the total work by 52% (p less than 0,005) and the maximum ST depression (ST max) fell by 45% (p less than 0,01). Resting heart rate was unchanged. There was a mild fall in systemic blood pressure. 2. Molsidomine had a significant synergic effect in 3 groups of 10 patients on betablocker therapy but with ischaemic changes on exercise: a) Molsidomine 1 mg sublingually increased WST 1 by 36% (p less than 0,05); at a 2 mg dosage, by 55% (p less than 0,001). ST max decreased from 2,4 +/- 0,4 mm to 1,3 +/- 0,3 (p less than 0,005) and 1,2 +/- 0,33 (p less than 0,001) respectively. The maximal effect was obtained with 1 mg in 5 out of 10 patients. b) One and three hours after 2 mg Molsidomine sublingually or orally: WST 1 increased from 97% to 110% (p less than 0,005): ST max decreased in similar proportions (p less than 0,005). c) 2 mg Molsidomine and 230 mg isosorbide dinitrate orally were compared after two hours: WST 1 increased by 130% after Molsidomine (p less than 0,005) and...Continue Reading
