Depressions in patients with essential hypertension complicated by chronic heart failure

Full Text:


Depressive disorders were detected in 48 (63.2%) of 76 patients (70 women and 6 men) with essential hypertension complicated by diastolic
heart failure. The quality of life and the degree of chronic heart failure and depressive disorders were estimated at the inclusion of the
patients into the study and then 3 months after therapy with the antidepressant pyrazidole. Moderate depressive disorders reduced exercise
tolerance. The degree of depressive disorders was found to be directly related to worse quality of life. During combination psychotropic and
basic treatment, there were improvements in the characteristics of physical and mental status and in quality of life in the patients.
