Heart failure, atrial fibrillation: association of white blood cells count and Leukocyte indexes
The aim of the study was to investigate the prospective association of WBC count and its individual components in patients with HF and sinus rhythm or and AF compare a population of apparently healthy middle-aged men and women. We observed of 389 patients with HF II-IV FC (NYHA): 357 patients with sinus rhythm and 32 patients with permanent HF, and 30 apparently healthy persons were included into this study. We studied of leukocytes count, their subpopulations in blood and some of leukocyte’ indexes were calculated. The HF is characterized of increased WBC, lymphocyte and neutrophil counts. There are no difference in this parameters in patients with AF or with sinus rhythm.
