Abstract

Tissue content of chemical elements indirectly characterizes some metabolic processes. We have analyzed content of chemical elements in left and right ventricular myocardium of patients with ischemic heart disease with progressing heart failure and have shown that during development and progression of heart failure metabolic processes have unidirectional character in myocardium of both ventricles. Derangement of left ventricular contractile capacity is associated with lowering of content of microelements involved in antioxidant processes and energy metabolism in tissues (Cu, Mn, Cr) and elevated concentration of elements characterizing progressive of myocardial stiffness (Ca, Fe).
