Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of left ventricular (LV) mechanical dyssynchrony in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) complicating acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
BACKGROUND: In systolic heart failure, LV mechanical dyssynchrony worsens cardiac function and cardiac resynchronization therapy improves clinical outcome. The role of LV mechanical dyssynchrony in HFPEF complicating ACS is unknown.
METHODS: One hundred two patients presenting with ACS (ejection fraction ≥50%) and 104 healthy controls were studied using tissue Doppler imaging: group 1 (n = 55) had HFPEF on presentation and group 2 (n = 47) had no clinical HFPEF. The SD of time to peak systolic myocardial velocity and the SD of early diastolic (Te-SD) myocardial velocity of 12 LV segments were obtained for evaluation of dyssynchrony. Longitudinal mean myocardial ejection systolic velocity (mean Sm) and mean early diastolic velocity (mean Em) were measured.
RESULTS: Te-SD was greater in group 1 (33 ± 13 ms) than group 2 (21 ± 9 ms) (p < 0.001), and diastolic mechanical dyssynchrony was evident in 35% of patients in group 1 but in only 9% in group 2 (p < 0.001). Conversely, the SD of time to peak systolic myocardial velocity was similar in the 2 ACS groups (34 ± 16 ms vs. 32 ± 18 ms; p = NS), showing a similar prevalence of systolic mechanical dyssynchrony (47% vs. 43%; p = NS). Worsening of the diastolic dysfunction grade was associated with a parallel increase in Te-SD (grades 0, 1, 2, and 3: 16 ± 3 ms, 21 ± 5 ms, 28 ± 9 ms, and 41 ± 17 ms, respectively; p < 0.001). Te-SD correlated negatively with mean Em (r = -0.56, p < 0.001) and positively with peak mitral inflow velocity of the early rapid-filling wave/Em (r = 0.69, p < 0.001); mean myocardial ejection systolic velocity correlated significantly with mean Em (r = 0.56, p < 0.001), SD of time to peak systolic myocardial velocity (r = -0.42, p < 0.001) and Te-SD (r = -0.23, p = 0.001). Multivariate analysis identified peak mitral inflow velocity of the early rapid-filling wave/Em as the only variable independently associated with HFPEF (odds ratio: 1.48, p = 0.001). When peak mitral inflow velocity of the early rapid-filling wave/Em was excluded from the model, Te-SD (odds ratio: 1.13, p < 0.001) and mean Em (odds ratio: 0.37, p < 0.001) became independently associated with HFPEF.
CONCLUSIONS: LV diastolic mechanical dyssynchrony may impair diastolic function and contribute to the pathophysiology of HFPEF, complicating ACS.
