Left Ventricular Contractile State in patients Undergoing Rehabilitation after myocardial infarction

T. V. Merhel


In patients with postinfarction cardiosclerosis chronic heart failure occurs and progresses in the presence of cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension (HT), diabetes mellitus (DM), dyslipidemia, smoking, obesity, sedentary lifestyle. According to clinical anamnesis and ECG data of post-myocardial infarction patients the course and prognosis of the disease was more favourable in patients who underwent endovascular reperfusion therapy using coronary stenting. Conducting percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) contributed to significant increase in left ventricular ejection fraction, lower end-systolic volume and myocardial mass and reduced LV myocardial performance index compared to patients who didn’t undergo revascularization. Reperfusion therapy improved course of postinfarction cardiosclerosis and therefore it should be a priority treatment of patients with acute myocardial infarction.
