The aim of the research was to study relationship between blood level of aldosterone and indexes of hemodynamics two years after myocardial infarction depending on presence or absence of concomitant arterial hypertension (AH). Fifty patients included into the study were divided into groups of patients without concomitant АH with ejection fraction (EF) ≥ 50 %, with concomitant АH and EF ≥ 50 %, and with heart failure and left ventricular systolic dysfunction. The level of aldosterone was not increased in patients with preserved EF without concomitant AH. It was increased in 40 % patients with preserved EF with concomitant AH, as well as in all patients with heart failure and left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
