OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine whether the intracoronary electrograms (IC-EGMs) recorded using a standard percutaneous coronary intervention guidewire could provide myocardial viability information.
BACKGROUND: The revascularization of dysfunctional but viable myocardium may confer prognostic benefits compared with medical therapy in patients with post-ischemic heart failure. However, knowledge of myocardial viability is often unavailable at the time of the procedure.
METHODS: The peak-to-peak voltage of 317 IC-EGMs recordings from 25 patients with a previous myocardial infarction and systolic dysfunction were matched with corresponding delayed-enhancement magnetic resonance imaging sites using a 17-segment model of the left ventricle.
RESULTS: Sixty-seven recordings were obtained from segments classified as complete scar on delayed-enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (group A), 162 from partially viable segments (group B), and 88 from fully viable segments (group C). Three high-pass (HP) filters (0.5, 30, and 100 Hz) were applied to the signals to modulate their spatial resolution. For all filters, the peak-to-peak voltage significantly decreased from group C to group B to group A (p < 0.001 for all comparisons). When receiver-operating characteristic analysis was used to compare nonviable (group A) with viable (group B + C) segments, the optimal discriminating voltages were 4.6, 2.2, and 0.78 mV for, respectively, HP-0.5, HP-30, and HP-100 filters, with a sensitivity of 92%, 94%, and 99% and a specificity of 70%, 79%, and 69%.
CONCLUSIONS: The amplitude of the IC-EGMs discriminates viable from nonviable left ventricular segments. Because this technique is simple and inexpensive and provides real-time results, it is potentially useful to aid decision making in the catheterization laboratory.
