Wael Rumaneh and Iryna Kupnovytska
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the main cause of death in Ukraine. The aims in the treatment of patients with CAD are to relieve symptoms, to maximize function in everyday life, and to achieve the highest level of health-related QOL within the specific limits imposed by CAD. The aim of the current study was to describe QOL in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) and concomitant arterial hypertension (AH). We examined 130 patients with acute Q-myocardial infarction (MI): 67 – without and 63 – with essential arterial hypertension. Arterial hypertension in patients with acute myocardial infarction has additional negative effect for quality of life.
