Left ventricular global systolic dysfunction has a significant role in the development of diastolic heart failure in patients with systemic hypertension.

Summary of "Left ventricular global systolic dysfunction has a significant role in the development of diastolic heart failure in patients with systemic hypertension."

Regional left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction has been identified in diastolic heart failure (DHF). However, the relationship between regional or global LV systolic function and heart failure symptoms in DHF has not been evaluated in detail. The present study evaluates such relationships in patients with systemic hypertension (HT) and DHF. We assessed LV systolic and diastolic function in 220 consecutive patients with systemic HT and in 30 normal individuals (Control) using Doppler echocardiography. Patients with HT were assigned to groups with DHF, asymptomatic diastolic dysfunction (ADD) and no diastolic dysfunction (Simple HT). Ejection fraction in DHF was significantly decreased (63+/-8%) compared with the Control, Simple HT and ADD groups (67+/-5, 66+/-7 and 68+/-8%, respectively). Isovolumetric contraction time in DHF (70+/-30 msec) was significantly increased compared with those in the ADD, Simple HT and Control groups (31+/-17, 31+/-15 and 30+/-19 msec, respectively). Mitral annular systolic velocities were significantly decreased in the DHF and ADD groups (6.4+/-1.5 and 7.2+/-1.3 cm sec(-1), respectively) compared with those in the Simple HT and Control groups (8.5+/-1.8 and 8.4+/-3.0 cm sec(-1), respectively), and in the DHF group compared with the ADD group. LV global systolic dysfunction has a significant role in the development of heart failure symptoms associated with DHF in patients with systemic HT.Hypertension Research advance online publication, 19 August 2010; doi:10.1038/hr.2010.142.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rare congenital cardiomyopathies characterized by the lack of left ventricular myocardium compaction. The noncompaction results in numerous prominent trabeculations and a loose myocardial meshwork (spongy myocardium) in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Heterogeneous clinical features include diminished systolic function sometimes associated with left ventricular dilation, that presents either neonatally or progressively. Often, the RIGHT VENTRICLE is also affected. CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE; PULMONARY EMBOLISM; and ventricular ARRHYTHMIA are commonly seen.

A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.

A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).

Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.

Diabetes complications in which VENTRICULAR REMODELING in the absence of CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS and hypertension results in cardiac dysfunctions, typically LEFT VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION. The changes also result in myocardial hypertrophy, myocardial necrosis and fibrosis, and collagen deposition due to impaired glucose tolerance.
