Changes in the T-wave Alternans in Patients With Heart Failure Treated Wih Sacubitril-Valsartan

2019-12-08 01:41:43 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study is to know if the Sacubitril-Valsartan treatment improves the T-wave alternans in those patients that begin its treatment, which would indirectly show a lower risk of malignant ventricular arrythmias.


Sacubitril-Valsartan has shown to reduce sudden death in its principal clinical trial, PARADIGM-HF.

A T wave alternans (TWA) is an electrophysiological phenomenon that acts as an independent predictor of sudden death and ventricular arrhythmias in postinfarct myocardial.

TWA is measured by using a special software and electrodes during a treadmill test, that analyse small changes in the microvolt of the T wave consecutive with a complex algorithm in three dimensions. The TWA could be negative (normal), positive (pathological) or indeterminate. If a TWA is pathological it reflects an electric instability in depolarization.

Our hypothesis is that the treatment with Sacubitril-Valsartan in heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction, could improved the TWA.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.

A pharmaceutical preparation of amlodipine and valsartan that is used for the treatment of HYPERTENSION.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
