To date, it is important to study the energy and adipokine metabolism indicators for the patients with acute myocardial infarction in the comorbid pathology presence. To determine the content of energy and adipokine metabolism in the patients with ST−segment elevation, depending on the presence or absence of obesity in the hospital period after primary coronary artery stenting, 120 patients were surveyed. They were divided into groups depending on the presence of comorbid pathology, i.e. obesity. Adropine, irisin, fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP−4), C1q / TNF−associated protein 3 (CTRP 3) were examined by enzyme−linked immunosorbent assay. All patients underwent coronary angiography. According to the study results, a decrease in the content of adropine, irisin and CTRP 3 as well as an increase in the concentration of FABP 4 on the first and fourteenth days in the patients of both groups compared with the control group (p ˂ 0.05) were determined. In the group of patients with myocardial infarction without obesity, an inverse correlation between Syntax Score (SS) and adropine (r = −0.432, p = 0.01), irisin (r = −0.478, p < 0.01), CTRP 3 r = − 0.473, p < 0.01), positive correlation between SS and FABP 4 (r = 0.436, p <0.05) were found. In the obese group, there was an inverse relationship between SS and adropine (r = −0.412, p < 0.05), irisin (r = −0.475, p < 0.05), CTRP 3 (r = −0.427, p < 0.05) and a direct relationship between SS and FABP 4 (r = 0.428, p < 0.05). The findings showed that obese patients with myocardial infarction had better energy and adipokine metabolism than obese patients. It was concluded that changes in energy and adipokine profiles in the patients might be a prognostic marker of the effectiveness of treatment of acute myocardial infarction in the comorbidity presence.

Key words: energy and adipokine exchange, myocardial infarction, obesity, stenting.
