A Biomarker and MRI Study on Troponin Release After Exercise in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||Heartcenter, University Medical Center St. Radboud|
|Start date||April 2012|
|End date||December 2020|
|Trial size||81 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01559714, NL37776.091.11|
Study population: 1) mutation carriers without the hypertrophic phenotype (pre-clinical Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)) and in 2) patients with clinically overt HCM (clinical HCM).
Hypothesis: Cardiac troponin release after exercise can be demonstrated in both clinical and pre-clinical HCM patients.
Patients with an echocardiographically proven hypertrophic cardiomyopathy according to the ESC and ACCF/AHA guidelines
Individuals with a HCM associated mutation without the clinical characteristics of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
Troponin levels at baseline and troponin rise after exercise testing using a high sensitivity-troponin (hs-troponin) assay
time frame: Baseline, 6 and 24 hours after exercise
Correlation between troponin levels and phenotypic characteristics assessed with MRI (LV volumes, mass and ejection fraction, presence of LGE and/or elevated signal on T2-weighted imaging)
time frame: Baseline
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
- Patients with an echocardiographically proven hypertrophic cardiomyopathy according to the ESC guidelines or individuals with a HCM associated mutation without the clinical characteristics of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (pre-clinical HCM patients);
- Age ≥ 18 years;
- Able to comply with the protocol;
- Written informed consent.
- Known significant epicardial coronary artery disease;
- Patients with LVH in the clinical setting of other disorders that explain the myocardial hypertrophy (amyloidosis, MELAS, Anderson-Fabry, WPW etc.);
- Heart failure NYHA class III-IV;
- Patients with known hemodynamic instability or syncope during exercise due to left ventricular outflow gradient or occurrence of ventricular arrhythmia;
- History of PTSMA (percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation) or Morrow myectomy;
- Patients not able to complete a bicycle test;
- Any contraindication to MR imaging (MR imaging is not obligatory for assessment of the primary objective, therefore relative exclusion criterion);
- Recent (within 30 days) admittance to the hospital for any cardiac reason (myocardial infarction, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia, etc.);
- Severe renal insufficiency (eGFR < 30 ml/min);
- Any other condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, may pose a significant hazard to the subject if he or she participates in the present study.
