In brief: Makes conditions

Worse! People who get the flu who have chronic systemic illness or have decreased function levels or are frail and debilitated do much worse in general tolerating acute illnesses.

In brief: Possibly no effect

Assuming the heart conditions are under control then, the flu should have little or no effect.
However high fevers or low temperatures or high or low blood pressure associated with the infection can affect heart issues. As long as basic vitals are followed you should be good
