Abstract

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) risk stratification is the most important preventive action in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The identification of the ischemia biomarker high sensitive troponin I (hs-TnI) role for this arrhythmic disease may provide additional information for SCD risk stratification. The aim of the study was to compare echocardiographic parameters (prognostic for risk stratification of SCD in HCM) among two subgroups of HCM patients: with elevated hs-TnI versus non-elevated hs-TnI level. In 51 HCM patients (mean age 39 ± 8 years, 31 males and 20 females) an echocardiographic examination, including the stimulating maneuvers to provoke maximized LVOT gradient, was performed. The hs-TnI was measured 24 h later. By comparing two subgroups of patients, 26 members with hs-TnI positive versus 25 with hs-TnI negative, the study showed that the values of all three parameters were greater: provocable left ventricular outflow tract gradient (LVOTG) - 49.1 ± 45.9 vs 25.5 ± 24.8 mmHg, p = 0.019; left atrial diameter - 50.1 ± 9.6 vs 43.9 ± 9.8 mmHg, p = 0.041; maximal LV thickness - 22.1 ± 5.3 vs 19.9 ± 34 mm, p = 0.029. The increased value of all three echocardiographic parameters used as risk factors for SCD (ESC Guidelines) is related to the elevated level of hs-TnI in HCM. Due to the high LVOTG - great hs-TnI relationship, exercise stress, both diagnostic and even rehabilitation/training, should be monitored by biomarker control.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 September 2017.
All research outputs
#6,070,868
of 11,771,184 outputs
Outputs from Cardiovascular Ultrasound
#61
of 225 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#102,204
of 265,077 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cardiovascular Ultrasound
#1
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,771,184 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 225 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,077 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
