The aim of this study was to examine the direction of change of left ventricle (LV) geometry in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), arterial hypertension (AH) and ischemic heart disease (IHD) in combination with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in dependence on severity of clinical signs of CHF and COPD based on recommendation of American Society of Echocardiography and European Association of Cardiovascular Images (2015). We examined 67 patients with CHF, associated with AH and stable IHD and stable COPD. By the results of this study there were determined different types of left ventricle geometry: concentric LV hypertrophy (LVH), eccentric LVH, mixed LVH, dilated LVH, dependent on blood pressure level, fibrosic and ischemic myocardial changes,, primary predominant disease ? AH, IHD or COPD.
