Abstract

Background: The strain imaging diastolic index (SI-DI) was reported to be a sensitive marker of regional left ventricular (LV) delayed relaxation induced by ischemia. However, the clinical usefulness of the global SI-DI has not been evaluated. N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is a sensitive biomarker for the detection of asymptomatic diastolic LV dysfunction. This study investigated the ability of a novel parameter, the global SI-DI, obtained using 2D speckle tracking imaging (2DSI) to correlate with the plasma NT-proBNP levels in asymptomatic hypertensive patients with preserved LV ejection fraction. Methods: We performed 2D echocardiography and 2DSI in 83 asymptomatic hypertensive patients with preserved ejection fraction (>45 %) and in 37 control subjects. In 2DSI, the LV longitudinal peak strain and the SI-DI of 18 LV segments were measured. NT-proBNP was measured in all subjects. The data were compared between hypertensive patients and normal controls. Results: The average peak strain and global SI-DI of 18 LV segments were significantly reduced in hypertensive patients compared with control subjects (P <0.05); however, only the global SI-DI was significantly correlated with log 10 NT-proBNP (r = -0.469, P = 0.001). In Pearson's correlation analyses, log 10 NT-proBNP was significantly correlated with E/e′, E/A ratio, early diastolic mitral annular velocity (e′), global peak strain, deceleration time of the E-wave, and LV ejection fraction. In the multiple stepwise regression analysis, the global SI-DI was the strongest independent determinant of log 10 NT-proBNP (β = -0.386, P = 0.008). Conclusions: The global SI-DI derived from 2DSI correlates well with plasma NT-proBNP levels and may have prognostic value in asymptomatic hypertensive patients with preserved ejection fraction.
