Özet

OBJECTIVE: Studies comparing ultrafiltration and diuretics in management of ADHF have shown controversial results. In this study, we compared the efficacy and safety of intravenous diuretic therapy and ultrafiltration in patients admitted with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) who had right ventricular dysfunction superimposed on left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
