coronary heart disease, acute myocardial infarction, cardiac markers, insulin-like growth factor-1


Over the last many years, cardiovascular disease has reached epidemic proportions among chronic noncommunicable diseases worldwide. According to the latest tendencies, cardiovascular diseases play the leading role in the formation of current negative health and demographic trends in Ukraine and all over the
world: they significantly affect the main health indicators: morbidity, mortality,  disability, life expectancy and quality of life. If we take the last 20 years, we can see that the prevalence of CVDs among the Ukrainian population has tripled, and the mortality rate from them has risen by 40%. Review was analysed serum level
insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in patients with acute myocardial infarction and his role in left ventricular remodelling was established. The scientific data regarding the neurohumoral component of acute myocardial infarction pathogenesis have been expanded by increasing levels of the angiogenesis marker IGF-I, which can be explained by his properties as markers of the acute phase of inflammation. An analysis of the relationship between troponin I and IGF-I, a marker of myocardial damage, showed a direct relationship, indicating an increase in troponin I concentration with rising serum IGF-I levels. This indicates that the activity of the angiogenesis marker IGF-I may be associated with the severity and depth of myocardial damage.
