(ter-li-pres'in),
The synthetic vasopressin analogue triglycyl-lysine-vasopressin.

terlipressin

A drug that releases vasopressin over a period of hours. This is used to help to control bleeding from OESOPHAGEAL VARICES by constricting the small arteries in the intestinal tract. A brand name is Glypressin.

A potential beneficial effect of beta-blockers and terlipressin, agents that are commonly used in cirrhosis and lower the pressures in the portal venous system, should be also addressed.
It has been shown by determining HVPG and observing waveform after administration of portal pressure lowering drugs like terlipressin, that from 'monophasic' to 'biphasic' or 'biphasic' to 'triphasic', HVPG change (decrease) was always 3 mm of Hg or more.8 Mean decrease in HVPG on improvement from 'monophasic' waveform to 'biphasic' waveform observed was 5.8 mm of Hg (range 3-10), while with two stepped wave change i.e.
It has been demonstrated that epinephrine, but not norepinephrine, could impair the splanchnic circulation in severe septic shock cases,[sup][21] whereas dopamine increased the global oxygen demand and impaired the hepatic energy balance.[sup][22] Moreover, in patients with norepinephrine-dependent septic shock, continuous low-dose vasopressin infusion resulted in hepatic perfusion damage;[sup][23] however, terlipressin blunted the progressive decrease in the MAP without any detrimental effects on hepatosplanchnic perfusion, oxygen exchange, and metabolism.[sup][24] Consequently, it was important to monitor the multiple factors that affected the hepatic perfusion alterations during resuscitation.
