Title: Risk factors control in patient with coronary artery disease


One of the most important reasons for the poorer prognosis in people with ischemic heart disease is the insufficient implementation of the principles of secondary prevention, including pharmacotherapy and the control of CVD risk factors. In the group of patients after elective revascularization, the influence of risk factors over a period of 10 years was analyzed. No significant improvement in the control of the main risk factors for ischemic heart disease was observed during this period. There were also no significant changes in the frequency of usage of antiplatelet, beta- blockers and lipid-lowering drugs in the period of 6-18 months after hospitalization. There has been a gradual increase in the mean body mass index in men, but not in women. The percentage of patients with central obesity gradually increased, with a similar trend in both men and women. Nearly 75% of all patients reported smoking in the past. Within 6-18 months after hospitalization due to ischemic heart disease, 17.2% of patients were still classified as “smokers”. Among pre-hospitalization smokers, 54.7% of patients continued to smoke or returned to smoking after hospitalization due to a study qualifying event. The analysis of the obtained data shows the significant potential for the further reduction of cardiovascular risk, sustained for many years, by improving the implementation of the principle ; s of secondary prevention of ischemic heart disease in clinical practice.
