Incremental value of left ventricular shape parameters measured by gated SPECT MPI in predicting the super-response to CRT
Department of Applied Computing
Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of left ventricular (LV) shape parameters measured by gated SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in super-responders enrolled in the VISION-CRT trial. Methods: One hundred and ninety-nine patients who met standard criteria for CRT from multiple centers were enrolled in this study. End-systolic eccentricity (ESE) and end-diastolic eccentricity (EDE) were measures of LV shape. Super-responders were the patients who had a relative increase in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≥ 15%. Results: Complete data were obtained in 165 patients, and 43.6% of them were classified as super-responders. ESE was an independent predictor of CRT super-responders in univariate (OR 12.59, 95% CI 1.56–101.35, P =.017) and multivariate analysis (OR 35.71, 95% CI 1.66–766.03, P =.006). ESE had an incremental value over significant clinical and SPECT imaging variables, including angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blocker, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, LVEF, end-diastolic volume index, and scar burden (AUC 0.82 vs. 0.80, sensitivity 0.68 vs. 0.65, specificity 0.82 vs. 0.78). Conclusions: LV shape parameters derived from gated SPECT MPI have the promise to improve the prediction of the super-response to CRT. Moreover, ESE provides incremental value over existing clinical and nuclear imaging variables.
