Effect of modified Wenyang Buxin decoction and routine therapy on cardiac function and serum levels of H-FABP, cTnI and Ang-2 in chronic heart failure patients
Purpose: To investigate the effect of modified Wenyang Buxin decoction and routine therapy on cardiac function and serum levels of heart-type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP), cardiac troponin-1 (cTnI) and angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) in chronic heart failure (CHF) patients.
Methods: A total of 120 CHF patients admitted to Zhejiang Province Rongjun Hospital (from January2019 - January 2020) were selected for this study. They were randomly but equally distributed into groups A and B. All patients were given routine therapy such as diuretic treatment and detumescence, while those in group A received 150 mL of modified Wenyang Buxin decoction daily, in addition to routine therapy. At 2 months after therapy, cardiac function indices, serum H-FABP, cTnI and Ang-2 levels, hemorheology indices, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) syndrome scores, and Chinese questionnaire of quality of life in cardiovascular patients (CQQC) scores of the two groups were evaluated.
Results: After therapy, cardiac function indices, serum H-FABP, cTnI and Ang-2 levels, hemorheology indices as well as TCM syndrome score and CQQC score were significantly improved in group A, when compared with corresponding values in group B (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: Modified Wenyang Buxin decoction and routine therapy improves serum biomarker levels, cardiac function and quality of life, and relieves clinical symptoms of CHF in patients. Therefore, this treatment approach may be useful in the management of CHF patients.
