Abstract: In 15 patients with chronic heart failure of ischemic origin who were not previously treated with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, platelets exhibited hyperaggregability and impaired responsiveness to the antiaggregatory and cyclic guanosine monophosphate-stimulatory effects of nitric oxide donor sodium nitroprusside compared with normal subjects; this was paralleled by increased blood levels of superoxide radicals. Treatment with perindopril for 4 days significantly improved platelet responses to sodium nitroprusside; there was also a trend toward a decrease in superoxide radical levels.
