SIMDAX (Levosimendan) Indication: Short-term treatment of acutely decompensated severe chronic heart failure (ADHF), Advanced heart failure (AdHF), patients undergoing cardiac surgery and in need of inotropic support and to improve and sustain hemodynamics in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Full Description

SIMDAX (Levosimendan) is a calcium sensitizer, it increases the sensitivity of the heart to calcium, thus increasing cardiac contractility without a rise in intracellular calcium, so the demand of Oxygen does not increase, and therefore ischemic attack and mortality are markedly decreased.

Levosimendan exerts its positive (Inotropic effect) by increasing calcium sensitivity of myocytes by binding to cardiac troponin C in a calcium-dependent manner.

It also has a (Vasodilatory effect) by opening adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-sensitive potassium channels in vascular smooth muscle to cause smooth muscle relaxation.

The combined (Inotropic and Vasodilatory actions) result in an increased force of contraction, decreased preload and decreased afterload.

Moreover, by opening also the mitochondrial (ATP)-sensitive potassium channels in cardiomyocytes, the drug exerts a (Cardioprotective effect).
