Tissue content of chemical elements indirectly characterizes some metabolic processes. We have analyzed content of chemical elements in left and right ventricular myocardium of patients with ischemic heart disease with progressing heart failure and have shown that during development and progression of heart failure metabolic processes have unidirectional character in myocardium of both ventricles. Derangement of left ventricular contractile capacity is associated with lowering of content of microelements involved in antioxidant processes and energy metabolism in tissues (Cu, Mn, Cr) and elevated concentration of elements characterizing progressive of myocardial stiffness (Ca, Fe)...

Erythropoietin level was studied in blood plasma of humans from different age groups and in patients with chronic hearts failure of ishemic genesis. It was determined that there was no statistically significant difference of erythropoietin level among the age groups. Erythropoietin level in patients with chronic heart failure was 16-fold greater (102.86 +/- 29.04 mU/ml) than in the studied elder aged groups (6.38 +/- 1.82 mU/ml). The data obtained indicate that elderly (60 to 85 years) persons' organisms retain the ability of response to hypoxia by intensive erythropoietin production...

Continuous brain blood supply in healthy individuals is warranted by brain autoregulation, the borders of which are not completely strict and can be changed as a part of dynamic physiological control. In acute neurological diseases like hypertensive encephalopathy, brain infarction, intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage, a great attention should be paid to cerebral perfusion pressure preservation (which represents a difference between mean arterial pressure and intracranial pressure) when blood pressure is regulated...

INTRODUCTION: Homocysteine is a sulphur amino acid produced by demethylation of the essential amino acid methionine. Dysfunction of certain enzymes or insufficient intake of nutrients may cause increase of intracellular homocysteine, which is then exported into plasma. ETIOPATHOGENESIS OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES ACCOMPANIED WITH HIGHER LEVEL OF HOMOCYSTEINE: McCully's theory suggests that high levels of homocysteine are associated with cardiovascular diseases, arteriosclerosis and endothelial dysfunction...

This research highlights high clinical affectivity of Amlodipine in patients with essential hypertension complicated by ishemic heart disease. Monotherapy with Amlodipine doesn't deteriorate contractive quality of the left ventricle. Therapy with Amlodipine considerably improves the diastolic function of the left ventricle and adjusts it. These positive changes are expressed in decreasing preload, end-diastolic pressure of the left ventricle.

36 specimens of the myocardium were obtained during necropsy of patients who had died of acute cardiac failure. Bcl-2, caspase 3 and p53 were studied immunohistochemically. TUNEL method was used to study apoptic DNA fragmentation in cardiomyocytes (Cms). The results suggest that apoptosis contributes to the development of cardiomyocyte injury in ishemia. Apoptotic death of Cms may lead to electric instabilly of the myocardium in early ishemia and cause sudden cardiac death. Apoptosis of the Cms may precede extension of the necrotic area...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is an integral term for several heart diseases among which SCD caused by ischemic heart disease (IHD) designated as sudden coronary death (SCD) ranks first. SCD associated with alcoholic cardiomyopathy ranks second. Risk factors and pathologic manifestations of SCD correspond to those of IHD, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction. Cardiac arrest takes place because of fibrillation of ventricular myocardium. Factor inducing fibrillation is an advanced irreversable myocardial ischemia complicated with reperfusion...
