Application of photomodification of blood using low-intensity optical radiation in the combination treatment of patients with unstable angina
O. Laskina, G. Zalesskaya, N. Mitkovskaya
The in vivo effect of low-intensity optical radiation (LIOR) on the blood of patients with unstable angina (UA) was studied. The integration of LIOR in the combined therapy of patients with UA proved to result in positive changes in the oxygen uptake system. Changes in the absorption spectra of the patients’ blood samples, blood oxygenation characteristics, and the proportion of metabolic products were studied at all stages of light exposure. The absorption of LIOR by the blood was found to lead to its photomodifica tion, which was manifested in changes of the partial pressure of blood gases, the content of oxyhemoglobin and the degree of saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen. LIOR affects the oxygen exchange in the body of patients with UA, changes the delivery and consumption of oxygen by tissues, initiates positive changes in the balance between the production of reactive oxygen intermediates, acting as physiologically active compounds, and their inhibition by antioxidant systems.

Diagnostic signs of myocardial reperfusion injury after coronary artery bypass grafting
Shybekа Nаtallia, Gelis Lyudmila, Rusak Tatsiana
One of the main causes for operative mortality and perioperative complications after coronary artery bypass grafting is myocardial reper fusion injur y following the restoration of the coronar y circulation in the ischemic zone of the myocardium and characterized by myocardial, electrophysiological and vascular dysfunction. In order to identify the diagnostic signs of myocardial reperfusion injury after coronary artery bypass grafting, a prospective study was conducted, which included 89 patients with ischemic heart disease and forthcoming coronary artery bypass grafting either on-pump or off-pump. Postischemic myocardial dysfunction was assessed using transesophageal echocardiography, morphological and functional signs of myocardial reperfusion injury were detected using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, moreover, the level of highly sensitive troponin, myoglobin, creatine phosphokinase-MB, metalloproteinase-2, and highly sensitive C-reactive protein was measured to assess the contribution of biomarkers to the development of reperfusion injuries. The obtained data allowed us to assess the morphological and functional characteristics of postischemic myocardial dysfunction and identify diagnostic signs of irreversible reperfusion injuries.

E.Yu. Brankovskaya, L.V. Kartun, E.V. Hodosovskaya, N.P. Mitkovskaya
The aim of the study was to investigate specific clinical manifestations, homeostasis indices and parameters of the cardiovascular system in patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and acute ischemic kidney injury. Methods. 173 patients with STEMI participated in the study. The study group consisted of 111 patients with acute ischemic kidney injury associated with myocardial infarction (MI); 62 patients with MI and normal kidney function were enrolled in the comparison group. Clinical, anthropometric, laboratory, and instrumental diagnostic methods were used. Results. Compared with patients of the MI and normal kidney function group, those with MI and acute ischemic kidney injury had a higher average heart rate, required more prolonged vasopressor and/or inotropic therapy, and more frequently developed tachyarrhythmias with adverse prognostic impact and postinfarction aneurysms. The study revealed that patients of the MI and acute ischemic kidney injury group demonstrated more severe dilatation of the left ventricle (LV), more pronounced reduction in myocardial LV contractility according to echocardiography results; they developed multivessel coronary artery disease more frequently. Furthermore, patients of this group had a higher incidence of infarction-associated artery damage located in the proximal segments of major coronary arteries and more frequently developed thrombotic occlusion in the infarction-affected artery. Patients with MI and acute ischemic kidney injury had higher levels of inflammatory, myocardial necrosis, hemostasis and neurohormonal activation markers. Higher concentration of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL) was observed in patients with MI and acute ischemic kidney injury; moreover, in 14,1% of patients belonging to this group, elevated levels of this marker preceded the diagnostically significant increase in creatinine concentration and decrease in glomerular filtration rate.

Arterial hypertension and atrial fibrillation: molecular genetic aspects of pathogenesis and complex therapy, focus on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system
N.V. Bukvalnaya, L.V. Yakubova, V.A. Snezhitskiy
This article is devoted to the effect of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system on the development and maintenance of atrial fibrillation on patients with arterial hypertension. It is noted that the adverse effects of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system end products, angiotensin II and aldosterone, can be caused not only by their hyperproduction, but also by the activation of the transforming growth factor β1 initiated by them. This cytokine initiates the process of fibrosis in the left atrium, which is a substrate of arrhythmia. The article features the results of multicenter clinical trial demonstrating the effectiveness of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers and mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists in the prevention of atrial fibrillation. The review includes the analysis of the effect of polymorphic variants of the angiotensin-converting enzyme gene ((I/D) ACE), the angiotensin II receptor gene type 1 ((A1166C) AGTR1), the aldosterone synthase gene (C/T (-344) CYP11B2) and the gene of the transforming growth factor β1 (G/C (+915) TGFB1) on the development of arterial hypertension and atrial fibrillation, as well as on the effectiveness of therapy with renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blocking drugs.

Fibroblast growth factor 21 from the perspective of a promising marker of metabolic disorders and premature aging in polymorbid cardiovascular pathology in young and middle-aged people
Galina A. Proshchai, Sergey V. Dudarenko, Alexander S. Partcerniak, Elena Yu. Zagarskikh, Sergey A. Partcerniak
Objective: To evaluate the possibility of using fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF 21) as a marker of metabolic disorders and premature aging in polymorbid cardiovascular pathology. Research methods: 199 men aged 35–55 years who were stratified into 3 groups were examined: group A – 117 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (type 2 diabetes), polymorbid cardiovascular disease (PCVD), obesity, androgen deficiency and anxiety-depressive disorders (ADD); group B – 55 patients with PCVD, obesity and ADD; group C – control group (n = 27). The examination of patients included a laboratory study of the level of FGF 21, indicators of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, hormonal status, as well as daily monitoring of blood pressure and ECG. Results and conclusions. When compared with the control group, the level of FGF 21 was 3 times higher in the presence of type 2 diabetes. The most intense increase in FGF 21 levels was observed in groups of patients with several diseases. An increase in the level of FGF 21 in young and middle-aged people is probably due to a compensatory reaction to the existing androgen deficiency, disorders of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Strong correlations between FGF 21 and glucose, HDL cholesterol, total testosterone, ALT, and SBP during the day allow FGF 21 to be considered an early marker of cardiovascular disease and premature aging (PA) in young and middle-aged people.

N. P. Strygo, V. I. Stelmashok, O. L. Polonetsky
Aim. To establish efficacy and safety of endovascular correction of long coronary lesion with biodegradable scaffolds in comparison with everolimus-eluting metallic coronary stents. Materials and methods. From 2013 to 2018 in Republican Scientific and Practical Centre «Cardiology», Minsk, endovascular correction of long (more than 25 mm) coronary artery lesions was performed on 80 patients. Randomly patients were divided into 2 groups: group 1 (n = 40) – endovascular correction with the biodegradable everolimus-eluting vascular scaffold Absorb BVS, and group 2 (n = 40) – endovascular correction with the everolimus-eluting metallic stent Xience V/Xience Pro. Results. In 12-month observational period there were no cases of death or myocardial infarction in both groups. One-year primary endpoint (death + myocardial infarction + target lesion failure) was 10% in group 1 (scaffolds BVS Absorb) and 8.75% in group 2 (Xience stents), 4 and 3 cases of target lesion failure accordingly (p > 0.05). As secondary endpoints there were 3 cases of target lesion revascularization registered and 4 cases of target vessel revascularization in each group, 5 cases of target vessel failure in group 1 and 4 cases in group 2 (p > 0.05). There was 1 case of confirmed and 1 case of probable scaffold thrombosis in group 1 (cumulative rate 5%), no cases of stent thrombosis in group 2 (p = 0.49). Conclusion. Long lesion correction with biodegradable scaffolds shows similar one-year clinical and angiographic results in comparison with everolimus-eluting stents. Combined endpoint risk (all death cases + myocardial infarction + revascularization due to target lesion failure) statistically did not differ in one-year period in both groups.

U.K. Kamilova, Z.D. Rasulova, N.A. Nuritdinov, D.R. Tagaeva
Aim. To identify prognostic factors for the development of renal dysfunction (RD) and to develop a method for assessing and predicting RD in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Methods. Totally, 101 patients with I-III functional class (FC) CHF were examined (according to the classification of the New York Heart Association). Additionally, the patients were distributed depending on the glomerular filtration rate determined by the calculation method according to the formula CKD-EPI (eGFR) into two groups: patients with eGFR ≥ 90 ml/min (n = 20), with eGFR < 90 ml/min (n = 81). In all patients there were determined: creatinine (Cr), eGFR according to the formula SKD-EPI, albumin/creatinine (Al/Cr) (mg/mmol) in morning urine, specific gravity in the morning urine (SG). We also studied renal blood flow according to Doppler ultrasonography readings at the level of the common left and right renal arteries.
