IVABRADINE SHIFT STUDY PDF

A major mechanism by which these agents are thought to provide benefit is by reducing myocardial oxygen demand by lowering heart rate through antagonism of sympathetic receptors in myocardial pacemaking tissue. This mechanism is supported by studies demonstrating strong associations between increasing resting heart rate HR and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. The novel sinus node modifying agent ivabradine lowers heart rate by inhibiting the "funny current" If channel which is critical in determining the automaticity rate of pacemaking cells in the sinoatrial node. Given this very targeted mechanism of action, ivabradine may allow for further HR lowering despite maximally-tolerated doses of beta blocker therapy.

Medical uses[ edit ] It is used for the symptomatic treatment of chronic stable angina pectoris in patients with normal sinus rhythm who cannot take beta blockers.

It is also being used off-label in the treatment of inappropriate sinus tachycardia. Heart failure[ edit ] It is used in combination with beta blockers in people with heart failure with LVEF lower than 35 percent inadequately controlled by beta blockers alone and whose heart rate exceeds 70 beats per minute. It should also not be used concomitantly with potent inhibitors of CYP3A4 , including azole antifungals such as ketoconazole , macrolide antibiotics, nefazodone and the antiretroviral drugs nelfinavir and ritonavir.

This is probably due to blockage of Ih ion channels in the retina , which are very similar to cardiac If. These symptoms are mild, transient, and fully reversible. It is one of the most important ionic currents for regulating pacemaker activity in the sinoatrial SA node. Ivabradine selectively inhibits the pacemaker If current in a dose-dependent manner. Blocking this channel reduces cardiac pacemaker activity, selectively slowing the heart rate and allowing more time for blood to flow to the myocardium.

Given the selective decrease in rate without loss of contractility, ivabradine may prove efficacious for treatment of congestive heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. Ivabradine did not show a significant reduction in the primary composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, admission to hospital for acute myocardial infarction, and admission to hospital for new onset or worsening heart failure.

The SIGNIFY trial randomized 19, patients with coronary artery disease and a heart rate greater than 70, but without clinical heart failure to ivabradine or placebo in addition to standard therapy. Ivabradine did not improve outcomes in this patient group.

The improvements in outcomes were observed throughout all prespecified subgroups: female and male, with or without beta-blockers at randomization, patients below and over 65 years of age, with heart failure of ischemic or non-ischemic etiology, NYHA class II or class III, IV, with or without diabetes, and with or without hypertension. Ivabradine, though indicated for chronic heart failure in patients who are clinically stable, is not indicated in acute heart failure where the enhanced heart rate represents cardiac reserve.

Indiscriminate use of Ivabradine could destabilise these patients. Society and culture[ edit ].
