How effective are Japanese Sigmart injections 12 mg for angina (nicorandil)?
Nicorandil is a nicotinamide ester working as nitrate and ATP-sensitive K+ channel agonist.Sigmart injections with nicorandil decrease the calcium sensitivity of the smooth muscle and relax smooth muscle resulting in coronary vasodilation. This medicine helps to dilate both normal and stenotic coronary arteries.
Who should use Sigmart injections 12 mg from Japan?
Sigmart injections are effective for the coronary vasodilation in patients with acute angina pectoris and for decreasing the heart burden in patients with heart failure. Studies showed that intravenous nicorandil is effective for both patients with unstable angina and variant angina, even helping with patients who are refractory to therapy with conventional antianginal agents (J. Frampton, M. M. Buckley, A. Fitton. “Nicorandil. A review of its pharmacology and therapeutic efficacy in angina pectoris”. Drugs. 1992, October, 44 (4): 625-55).
