The relationship between altered coronary circulation and left ventricular (LV) function in dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) remains unclear. We used the Doppler guidewire and transthoracic echo Doppler in 24 DCM patients to investigate the relationship between coronary flow reserve (CFR) and LV systolic/diastolic function, trying to predict diastolic dysfunction and evaluate DCM severity with CFR. CFR correlated better with the deceleration time (DT) of the E-wave and the ratio of E-wave peak value to that of the A-wave (E/A) than with LV ejection fraction (EF). The optimal CFR cutoff value for predicting the restrictive pattern of transmitral flow velocity (DT = 120 msec) was 2.6 (sensitivity 91%, specificity 100%). Dividing patients into two groups around the CFR = 2.6 cutoff, differences in DT and E/A between groups were more prominent than those for EF. CFR correlates better with LV diastolic than systolic function and may be useful for predicting diastolic dysfunction in DCM patients.
