Abstract

Increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) is detrimental to cardiac output in postoperative cardiac-surgery patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the postoperative hemodynamic effects of milrinone inhalation, and determine whether it has a selective effect of pulmonary vasodilation in patients with pulmonary hypertension undergoing mitral valve replacement surgery.
