AIM: To study effectiveness of natural combined medicine pumpan in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) including cases with concomitant arterial hypertension (AH). MATERIAL AND METHODS: 35 patients with different forms of IHD (myocardial infarction, stable and unstable angina pectoris of functional class III-IV) received conventional treatment combined with pumpan given for 7-11 weeks. Changes in clinical condition, biochemical blood indices, ECG, echo-CG, 24-h arterial pressure monitoring data were investigated. RESULTS: The addition of pumpan to the standard therapy reduced frequency of anginal attacks, improved intracardiac hemodynamics, psychic and adaptive indices. CONCLUSION: Pumpan is a good adjuvant to conventional treatment of various IHD forms including combination of IHD with AH. Pumpan enables reduction in the required doses of beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, nitrates, sedatives. It also provides hypocoagulatory and hypocholesterolemic effect.
