Abstract

The case of woman with dysfunction of left ventricle (LV) possible due to Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment and following myocarditis is presented. Triple therapy with carvedilol, ramipril and spironolactone was continued to prevent further LV remodeling. During 3-years follow-up repeated echocardiographic examinations revealed gradual improvement of LV function and clinical condition of the patient. Results of current studies suggest benefits of early implementation of aldosterone antagonist therapy in addition to ACE-inhibitors/angiotensin receptors blockers and β-blockers in patients with chronic heart failure.
