Parashcheniuk Comparative characteristic of the basic clinical and demographic parameters and evaluation of quality of life in patients with chronic heart failure of ischemic origin with systolic left ventricular dysfunction and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction.

581 patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) of ischemic origin with systolic left ventricular dysfunction (SLVD) and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (PLVEF) were examined. This study was aimed to compare clinical, hemodynamic and demographic characteristics and quality of life (QL) in patients with CHF of ischemic origin of the Ukrainian population with SLVD and with PLVEF. Compared with patients with SLVD, patients with PVLEF were characterized by better clinical and functional status (lower average NYHA class, the prevalence of NYHA II patients, shorter duration of symptoms of CHF, significantly better exercise tolerance according to the 6-minute walk test), better QL according to Minnesota questionnaire, smaller percentage of patients with previous myocardial infarction (MI), and simultaneously, higher body mass index and significantly greater proportion of patients with obesity and with hypertension.
