Findings on 3D speckle tracking echocardiography in asymptomatic methamphetamine abusers

Findings on 3D speckle tracking echocardiography in asymptomatic methamphetamine abusers To detect potential cardiac abnormalities in asymptomatic methamphetamine abusers using three-dimensional speckle track- ing echocardiography (3D STE). Fifty-three male methamphetamine abusers, free of cardiac symptoms/signs, were enrolled in this study. A control group of 53 age-matched male normal subjects was studied for comparison. Standard 3D, flow and tissue Doppler echo with measurements of left ventricular end-diastolic volume (LVEDV), end-systolic volume (LVESV), ejection fraction (LVEF), the ratio of the early to late diastolic transmitral filling velocity (E/A), the ratio of the early dias- tolic transmitral filling velocity to the early diastolic septal tissue velocity (E/E′ ) and 3D STE with measurements of global area strain (GAS), global longitudinal strain (GLS), global circumferential strain (GCS) and global radial strain (GRS) were performed, respectively. These echocardiographic parameters were compared between methamphetamine abusers and normal subjects, and receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC) analysis was done to differentiating methamphetamine abusers from normal subjects. LVESV, LVEDV, LVEF, E/A, E/E′ ratios and GRS were not significantly different between methamphetamine abusers and normal subjects (p > 0.05). However, GAS, GLS and GCS were significantly less in meth- amphetamine abusers than in normal subjects (p < 0.05). The areas under ROC (AUC) for GAS were greatest among all http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging Springer Journals

Abstract

To detect potential cardiac abnormalities in asymptomatic methamphetamine abusers using three-dimensional speckle track- ing echocardiography (3D STE). Fifty-three male methamphetamine abusers, free of cardiac symptoms/signs, were enrolled in this study. A control group of 53 age-matched male normal subjects was studied for comparison. Standard 3D, flow and tissue Doppler echo with measurements of left ventricular end-diastolic volume (LVEDV), end-systolic volume (LVESV), ejection fraction (LVEF), the ratio of the early to late diastolic transmitral filling velocity (E/A), the ratio of the early dias- tolic transmitral filling velocity to the early diastolic septal tissue velocity (E/E′ ) and 3D STE with measurements of global area strain (GAS), global longitudinal strain (GLS), global circumferential strain (GCS) and global radial strain (GRS) were performed, respectively. These echocardiographic parameters were compared between methamphetamine abusers and normal subjects, and receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC) analysis was done to differentiating methamphetamine abusers from normal subjects. LVESV, LVEDV, LVEF, E/A, E/E′ ratios and GRS were not significantly different between methamphetamine abusers and normal subjects (p > 0.05). However, GAS, GLS and GCS were significantly less in meth- amphetamine abusers than in normal subjects (p < 0.05). The areas under ROC (AUC) for GAS were greatest among all
