O trabalho é um avanço no tratamento de insuficiência cardíaca em pacientes caquéticos e dependentes de dobutamina


O uso de HG em pacientes com insuficiência cardíaca descompensada e caquexia determinou estabilidade clínica sem a necessidade de drogas inotrópicas permitindo introdução de drogas não previamente toleradas.
