Effect of cardiac resynchronization therapy on septal perfusion and septal thickening: association with left ventricular function, reverse remodelling and dyssynchrony
MetadataShow full item record
Background We evaluated the effect of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) on septal perfusion and thickening at 6 months post implantation assessed on Tc99m-MIBI Gated myocardial perfusion SPECT (GMPS).We also studied the association of change in septal perfusion and thickening with primary outcome defined as at least one [improvement in >= 1NYHA class, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) by >= 5%, reduction of end-systolic volume (ESV) by >= 15%, and improvement >= 5 points in Minnesota living with heart failure questionnaire (MLHFQ)]. Method One hundred and five patients underwent clinical and GMPS evaluation before and at 6 months post CRT. Result Post CRT there was significant improvement in mean normalized septal perfusion uptake and in septal thickening (Pvalue = 0.001, both). There was no significant relation between improvement in septal perfusion and primary outcome. However, improvement in septal thickening was statistically significant with favorable primary outcome (P = 0.001).There was no significant correlation between improvement of septal perfusion and improvement in LVEF, reduction in End diastolic volume (EDV), ESV, and Left ventricular Dyssynchrony (LVD). But, there was significant correlation between improvement of septal thickening and these parameters. Conclusion Improvement in septal thickening was associated with reverse remodeling, improvement in LVEF, and reduction of LVD.
