THE IMPORTANCE OF TIMELY TREATMENT OF THE CAUSES OF HEART FAILURE ON THE EXAMPLE OF THE CLINICAL CASE
Acquired heart disease complicated by chronic heart failure (CHF), which significantly impairs the quality of life of patients and worsens the prognosis and remains radical surgical treatment with implantation of prosthetic valve. On the example of a clinical case are shown and discussed the results of a late replacement of the mitral valve in patient with acquired heart defect.
There is 3 years after surgical treatment of patients with replacement of the mitral valve there was stabilization of heart failure without signs of involution.Clinical case shows that it is better later surgery, than not to do it at all. For creative development of CHF is required, however, as possible earlier intervention.
