Could presystolic wave be a predictor for subclinical left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in ankylosing spondylitis?


Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical significance of presystolic wave in the detection of diastolic dysfunction in ankylosing spondylitis patients. Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 59 patients and 65 healthy controls were included in the study. Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Score, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index, Maastricht Ankylosing Spondylitis Enthesitis Score and Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index was eveluated. The Doppler tissue-imaging and presystolic wave measurements were performed by same cardiologist who was blinded to study details. Results: Presystolic wave was detected in 26.6% of the whole study population; in 37.3% of patients and 16.9% of the control group. When the patient and control groups were divided into two subgroups according to the presence or absence of presystolic wave; myocardial performance index, transmitral E wave velocity, E/A ratio, left ventricular outflow tract velocity and septal e’ wave velocity were statistically significant in subjects with presence presystolic wave in both groups. In the univariate model, high c-reactive protein level, increased BASMI and BASFI scores and elevated myocardial performance index were determined as risk factors for the presence of presystolic wave in ankylosing spondylitis patients. Conclusion: The assessment of presystolic wave on echocardiography examination may provide important information about the left ventricul diastolic function, which has a prognostic impact for ankylosing spondylitis patients.
