The objective: assessing of the impact of the 3 month course of treatment with L arginine on the clinical and functional and laboratory parameters in patients with various forms of heart failure.

Patients and methods. The study included 55 patients with cardiomyopathy: 22 patients with isolated right ventricular dilated cardiomyopathy (RVDCMP) and 33 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) with bi ventricular heart failure. The average age of patients 42,1 ± 9,0 year (from 21 to 54 years). Depending on the shape of heart failure patients were divided into two groups. The first group included 22 patients with RVDCMP (average age 45,3 ± 10,2 years), the second included 33 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (mean age 45,3 ± 13,3 years).

Results. It was noted improvement in clinical and functional and laboratory parameters in both groups of patients, but in the case of RVD CMP these changes were more pronounced in comparison with a group of DCM. Different effects of L-arginine in the analyzed group of patients was caused by the presence of irreversible changes in the state of decompensated myocardium in patients with dilated cardiomyopa thy, while in patients with RVDCMP compensatory response of the heart muscle must have been higher.

Conclusion. The use of arginine in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy with right ventricular or bi-ventricular lesion improves vascular endothelial function, affecting the flow-dependent vasodilatation.
