METHODS AND RESULTS: Baseline and a 12-month follow-up 2D echocardiograms were performed in 191 Stage A heart failure patients with uncomplicated hypertension. These patients underwent simultaneous measurement of conventional and central blood pressures (BPs) and haemodynamic measurements by applanation tonometry. Significant, but weak correlations (r = 0.15-0.28) of LV strain parameters and their changes over the follow-up period were shown for the majority of LV afterload-associated variables, including central and brachial systolic, diastolic, and mean BPs; 24-h systolic and diastolic BPs; peak reservoir and excess pressures; central augmented pressure (CAP) and pulse pressure; augmentation index; and arterial elastance index (EaI). Central mean BP, EaI, and changes in CAP and EaI over follow-up were independent contributors to LV deformation in multivariable analysis. No improvement in the Bland-Altman 95% limits of agreement and correlation coefficients was seen with LV afterload correction of GLS and GCS using central BP indices.
CONCLUSIONS: LV longitudinal and circumferential strains in a population without apparent heart disease is relatively insusceptible to changes in LV afterload within physiological range, which, therefore, seem unlikely to be a significant confounder in repeated GLS or GCS observations.
