CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CLINICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL COURSE OF NON-REUMATIC MYOCARDITIS IN CHILDREN
Keywords:children, non-rheumatic myocarditis, clinics, brain natriuretic peptide
This article presents the study clinical and biochemical features of non-rheumatic myocarditis in 30 infants and toddlers . The analysis of the obtained results showed that the clinical course of it depends on cardiovascular insufficiency degree and it was characterized by rhythm and conduction disturbances, reduced contractility and myocardial remodeling. At children with non-rheumatic myocarditis, brain natriuretic peptide ( NT - proBNP ) has a highly informative prognostic indicator for predicting the course of disease and severity assessment of chronic heart failure.
