Abstract

We report the use of nesiritide in two infants following cardiac surgery. Both infants had increased intracardiac filling pressures postoperatively, despite traditional afterload reduction and diuretics. Both infants demonstrated clinical improvement with nesiritide therapy. There is currently limited data available describing the use of nesiritide in infants.
