In the article, it was researched that the frequency and severity of psychosomatic disorders of the anxiety-depressive circle in 105 patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) with atrial fibrillation (AF) and various indicators of the left ventricular ejection fraction. There was a significant relationship between AF and the frequency and severity of anxiety-depressive disorders (ADD) in CHF, rather than CHF with sinus rhythm (92% and 38%, respectively). Also, the presence and severity of ADD correlated directly with heart rate and left atrial volume. The authors have convincingly analyzed that AF on the background of CHF with reduced LVEF (left ventricular ejection fraction) negatively affects the nature of psychosomatic relationships, forming, in fact, a "three-component" comorbidity, which negatively affects the clinical course and quality of life of patients.
