Abstract

Cardiac hypertrophy is one of the earliest manifestations of myocardial disease, representing a modifiable, prognostic response to hemodynamic stimuli across physiologic (e.g., exercise) and pathologic states (e.g., hypertension, aortic stenosis). The extent of myocardial hypertrophy is determined by a combination of cardiomyocyte size and extracellular volume (ECV) expansion/interstitial fibrosis: while physiologic (exercise-induced) hypertrophy reflects mostly reversible cardiomyocyte hypertrophy, pathologic hypertrophy (e.g., in heart failure) is a combination of both interstitial fibrosis (potentially irreversible) and cardiomyocyte hypertro-phy (reversible). Current methods to delineate the potential for LV reverse remodeling (e.g., natriuretic peptides and echocardiographic or clinical markers) detect primarily advanced disease, missing a critical opportunity to intervene and follow patients at an early disease phase where myocardial pathology may be reversible. Therefore, establishing novel, quantitative metrics of myocardial tissue phenotype that define a transition from hypertrophy to fibrosis, and then to irreversible LV remodeling/dysfunction may facilitate targeting therapies at a modifiable stage of disease in HF. Our group has recently extended cardiac T1 mapping MRI techniques to quantify the intracellular lifetime of water (Äic) serially as an index of cardiomyocyte diameter, validating this technique histologically in mouse models of pressure overload. The central hypothesis of this application is that these novel MRI metrics will define the role of fibrosis and cardiomyocyte size in the development of LV remodeling/HF and will be associated with prognostically important indices in HF development.
