Resumen The state of the cardiovascular system in 60 foundry workers exposed to urea-formaldehyde resin degradation products was studied. Workers in the control group had no contact with these substances. Medical examinations were repeated annualy during 3 years and included analysis of haemodynamics, electrocardiography and determination of peripheral resistance. The results showed that exposed workers had an overload of the right ventricle. The left heart reacted to prolonged exposure by developing hypokinesia, and an increase in peripheral resistance was observed. Appropriate preventive measures are recommended.
