Elevated Plasma Adiponectin Levels Are Associated with Abnormal Corrected QT Interval in Patients with Stable Angina.

Elevated Plasma Adiponectin Levels Are Associated with Abnormal Corrected QT Interval in Patients with Stable Angina. Int Heart J. 2020 Jan 17;: Authors: Wu CC, Chang CS, Hsu CC, Wang CP, Tsai IT, Lu YC, Houng JY, Chang CC, Chung FM, Lee YJ, Hung WC Abstract Low-circulating levels of adiponectin (ADPN) are associated with obesity, diabetes mellitus, and coronary artery disease. On the contrary, some studies have demonstrated a link between relatively high levels of plasma ADPN and heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and adverse outcome. However, little is known about the relationship between ADPN level and prolonged QT interval. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between plasma ADPN levels and prolonged QT interval in patients with stable angina.In this retrospective study, because the diverse disease severity and condition of the study population may have affected the results, we chose individuals with stable angina. Plasma ADPN concentrations were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays. A 12-lead ECG recording was obtained from each patient.We enrolled 479 stable-angina patients. Patients with an abnormal corrected QT (QTc) interval had higher median plasma ADPN levels than those with normal QTc intervals. Age- and sex-adjusted ADPN levels were positively associated with heart rate, QTc interval, left ventricular mass index, and creatinine but negatively associated with left ventricular ejection fraction, waist circumfer...

ConclusionsPatients with CMS were more likely to present with increased comorbidities. Patients with CMS undergoing CABG were at risk for worse short ‐term secondary postoperative outcomes and reduced long‐term survival. The data supports the need for further investigation for risk reduction surrounding operative revascularization.
