Keywords: comorbidity, coronary heart disease, age, incidence


Nowadays, scientists and doctors are increasingly paying attention to the study of the cardinal problem of modern clinical medicine, comorbidity and polymorbidity, which may arise as a result of common etiology, pathogenesis, cause and effect influences (the syntopic impairments) or as an accidental combination of disease (the accompanying impairments) with age factor, anatomical closeness of the affected organs or accidental combination of diseases. The aim: to define the concomitant diseases and their course, which are most often observed in patients with CHD. The prospective study involved 100 patients with coronary heart disease: stable angina, І-ІV NYHA Class, І-II HF. Results and discussion. The incidence of combined pathology in patients with CHD increases with age: in group I, one of the comorbid conditions prevails (mainly gastrointestinal tract diseases), in group II and III, there are two or more concomitant diseases. Among the total number of patients, 95% live in the city, hence the result of the urbanization process, and only 5% live in the village. The analysis of medicines prescriptions, used in the treatment of patients with CHD revealed an increased use of larger amounts of drugs in age group III (≥60) as compared to groups I (≤40) and II (41-60). Adequate combined prescriptions of medicines to patients with comorbid conditions will allow us not only to prevent progression of each disease, but also to improve the long-term prognosis. Essential hypertension is the «leader» in the total number of comorbid diseases, which makes up 77% of patients among the total number of subjects, with the highest incidence in the II (41-60) and III (≥60) age group. Thus, the obtained results indicate differences in the course and clinical presentation of coronary heart disease, depending on the presence of comorbid pathology, which leads to a more severe disease course, a greater number of comorbidities with increasing age of patients.
