Aldosterone plays an important role in the development of reparative and reactive fibrosis and cardiac remodeling (CR) after myocardial infarction. The objective of the study is to investigate the structural and functional parameters of the myocardium, heart rate variability (HRV), exercise intolerance, levels of sST2 in association with polymorphism of CYP11B2 gene of aldosterone-synthase in ST-myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients during a 6-months follow-up period. 85 STEMI patients were enrolled: 68 (80 %) male and 17 (20 %) female, mean age was 58,94 ± 10,16 years. Examinations were performed twice: during 1–3 days after PCI with infarct-related artery stenting and included clinical assessment, ultrasound diagnostic, immunofermentative blood analyses (sST2), polymerase chain reaction in real time (polymorphism –T344C of the CYP11B2 gene). After 6-months of observation, 57 patients were reexamined – clinical assessment, ultrasound diagnostic, HRV were performed. CYP11B2 TT-genotype in 6 months after STEMI is associated with a maladaptive character of after infarction remodeling.
