OBJECTIVES: An estimated 50,000 patients have heart failure (HF) in Japan, and the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is the typical predictor of prognosis. The identification of a noninvasive marker to predict most high-risk patients is urgently needed. This study aimed to log the continuous ventricular late potential (LP) by using high-resolution ambulatory monitoring in patients with HF with non-sustained ventricular tachycardia, and determine the association between the LP variation and prognosis.
METHODS: The 90 hospitalized patients were classified into cardiogenic death (n = 10) and non-death (n = 80) groups. The LVEF, LP, and coefficient of variation (CV) of the filtered QRS (fQRS), and low-amplitude signal < 40 µV for the terminal QRS portion of (LAS40) of both groups were evaluated. The maximum fQRS over 24 h was defined as the maximum fQRS (Max-fQRS).
RESULTS: The results were as follows: (1) cardiogenic death occurred in 32% (10/31 patients) with an LVEF ≤ 45% and a Max-fQRS ≤ 114 ms; (2) cardiogenic death occurred in 38% (10/26 patients) with a LAS40-CV ≥ 0.09; and (3) using LVEF, Max-fQRS, and LAS40-CV as the three predictors, the specificity and accuracy were 83% and 82%, respectively, with an odds ratio of 12.3.
CONCLUSIONS: LAS40 variations and increases might be new risk indicators of prognosis.
