Data from the ISHLT Registry indicated that 70% of patients transplanted between 1999 and 2001 were receiving mycophenolate, and 15% were receiving azathioprine (2). Two newer drugs, sirolimus (also called rapamycin) and its derivative everolimus, are also antiproliferative agents; they are collectively referred to as TOR (target of rapamycin) inhibitors.
As described regarding the management of pulmonary hypertension in the pretransplant setting, a variety of intravenous agents with vasodilatory and/or inotropic properties have been used postoperatively to reduce pulmonary vascular resistance and support right heart function. Dobutamine (92) and milrinone (93) are effective in this setting, combining inotropic support for both the left and the right ventricle with pulmonary vasodilation. The utility of nonspecific vasodilators like dobutamine, milrinone, and isoproterenol may be limited by systemic vasodilation and hypotension, especially if the systemic vascular resistance is already low (see below).
