Abstract [en]

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is common and increases the risk for stroke and heart failure (HF). The early identification of patients at risk may prevent the development of AF and improve prognosis. This study, therefore, aimed to test the effect of the association between P-wave and PR-interval on the ECG and incident AF. The PIVUS (Prospective Investigation of the Vasculature in Uppsala Seniors) study (1016 individuals all aged 70 years; 50% women) was used to identify whether the ECG variables P-wave duration (Pdur) and PR-duration in lead V1 were related to new-onset AF. Exclusion criteria were prevalent AF, QRS-duration >= 130 milliseconds (msec), atrial tachyarrhythmias and implanted pacemaker/defibrillator. Cox proportional-hazards models were used for analyses. Adjustments were made for gender, RR-interval, beta-blocking agents, systolic blood pressure, body mass index, and smoking. Of 877 subjects at risk, 189 individuals developed AF during a 15-year follow-up. There was a U-shaped relationship between the Pdur and incident AF (P = 0.017) following multiple adjustment. Values below 60 msec were significantly associated with incident AF, with a hazard ratio of 1.55 (95% confidence interval 1.15-2.09) for a Pdur <= 42 msec. There was no significant relationship between incident AF and the PR-interval. A short Pdur derived from the ECG in V1 may be a useful marker for new-onset AF, enabling the early identification of at-risk patients.

Abstract [en]

Heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) are epidemic diseases, frequently coexisting, sharing risk factors and conferring poor prognosis. Identification of individuals at high risk of HF and AF may enable early treatment and improve the prognosis. Reliable prediction models for daily clinical practice are lacking. Early modification and treatment of risk factors may reduce the incidence of AF and HF. Because atrial structure and function abnormalities increase the risk of AF, ECG indices reflecting atrial pathology may prove useful in predicting AF and HF.

The main objectives were to evaluate whether:

  • P-wave duration (Pdur) and PR-interval in V1 predicted incident HF and incident AF (Paper I-II)
  • low frequency/high frequency (L-F/H-F) ratio, a marker of autonomic balance, predicted incident HF (Paper IV)
  • combining selected ECG variables or the L-F/H-F ratio with traditional risk factors improved the performance of the traditional HF prediction model (Paper III-IV).

The Prospective Investigation of the Vasculature in Uppsala Seniors (PIVUS) with 15 years of follow-up was used for all four studies. After applying the exclusion criteria, 836 subjects were evaluated for incident HF (Paper I, III-IV) and 877 subjects for incident AF (Paper II). Cox proportional hazard analysis related ECG-derived variables to incident HF and incident AF. Study III used machine learning to determine which ECG variables correlated to incident HF. C-statistic was used to test whether adding selected ECG variables to traditional HF risk factors improved the performance of the HF prediction model.

Short Pdur was significantly associated with incident HF (Paper I) and incident AF (Paper II). Of 134 ECG variables, high R-wave amplitude variation (SD Ramp) had the highest predictive value for HF (Paper III). A decreased L-F/H-F ratio significantly predicted HF (Paper IV). Adding eight selected ECG variables (Paper III) and the L-F/H-F ratio (Paper IV) to the traditional risk factors significantly improved HF predictive performance by 11.7% and 3.3%, respectively.

In conclusion, the ECG may prove useful for predicting incident HF and AF beyond the traditional risk factors. An autonomic imbalance may precede the development of HF.
