Abstract

Background-The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) on cardiac autonomic function. Methods and Results-This prospective study included 45 consecutive patients with heart failure who received CRT devices with defibrillator and 20 age-matched, healthy control subjects. At baseline and 3 months and 6 months after CRT, we assessed New York Heart Association (NYHA) class, 6-minute walk distance, plasma sympathetic biomarker nerve growth factor, echocardiography, heart rate variability and cardiac presynaptic sympathetic function determined by iodine 123 metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy. After CRT, NYHA class improved by 1 class (P<0.001), and left ventricular ejection fraction increased by 8% (P<0.001). Along with improvement in the standard deviation of all normal-to-normal R-R intervals (85.63±31.66 ms versus 114.79±38.99 ms; P=0.004) and the standard deviation of the averaged normal-to-normal R-R intervals (82.62±23.03 ms versus 100.50±34.87 ms; P=0.004), the delayed heart/mediastinum (H/M) ratio increased (1.82 [0.58] versus 1.97 [0.59]; P-0.03), whereas the mean (SD) H/M washout rate was reduced (48% [19%] versus 37% [22%]; P=0.01). Twenty-two of 45 study patients responded to CRT, with a reduction of left ventricular end-systolic volume index >15%. Compared with nonresponders, responders had a higher delayed H/M ratio (2.11 versus 1.48; P=0.003) and lower H/M washout rate (37% versus 62%; P=0.003) at baseline. Conclusions-CRT improved sympathetic function. Cardiac sympathetic reserve may be a marker for the reversibility of failing myocardial function.
