Resumen

MASSARDO, Teresa et al. Endothelial dysfunction, left ventricular function, and chronic heart failure with complete left bundle branch block: effect of resynchronization therapy. Rev Chil Cardiol [online]. 2018, vol.37, n.3, pp.183-193. ISSN 0718-8560.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-85602018000300183.

Introduction:

Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a complex condition associated with systemic inflammation and endothelial dysfunction (ED) whose pathogenesis is not well understood.

Objective:

to evaluate a possible relationship between peripheral ED markers and response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT).

Method:

20 patients with CHF, QRS ≥120ms and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤35% were studied before and 6 months post-CRT. Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ); walking test (6min-WT); 2D-echocardiography and gated perfusion SPECT at rest; ultra-sensitive C-reactive protein (us-CRP); brain natriuretic peptide (pro-BNP); circulating endothelial cells (CEC); vascular soluble adhesion (sVCAM) and intercellular adhesion molecules (sICAM); interleukin-6 (IL-6) and von Willebrand Factor (vWF) were measured in all subjects. They were classified as responders or not to CRT, according to pre-established criteria.

Results:

Basal means: pro-BNP 5,290 pg / ml; us-CRP 1.7 ug/mL; MLHFQ 72; 6min-WT 391 meters. The CEC and IL-6 were above normal limits. Post-CRT, 50% were responders: 11/20 improved ≥1 NYHA class and ≥10% increase in 6min-WT; MLHFQ decreased (p <0.0001); LVEF improved (p = 0.003); final systolic volume decreased (p = 0.008) and also pro-BNP (p= 0.03). In responders CEC decreased, persisting over normal limits. There were correlations between changes of pro-BNP with TM-6min and between us-PCR with MLHFQ and vWF (p≤0.004 in all).

Conclusions:

In CHF there is evidence of significant ED, expressed by sICAM and CEC, a sensitive peripheral biomarker that decreased 6 months post-CRT although persisting above normal limits. Other functional and inflammatory parameters were correlated in the total group, without differences between responders and non-responders.
