BackgroundFunctional mitral regurgitation is one of the severe complications of non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy DCM. Non-contrast native T1 mapping has emerged as a non-invasive method to evaluate myocardial fibrosis. We sought to evaluate the potential relationship between papillary muscle T1 time and mitral regurgitation in DCM patients.

MethodsForty DCM patients 55 ± 13 years and 20 healthy adult control subjects 54 ± 13 years were studied. Native T1 mapping was performed using a slice interleaved T1 mapping sequence STONE which enables acquisition of 5 slices in the short-axis plane within a 90 s free-breathing scan. We measured papillary muscle diameter, length and shortening. DCM patients were allocated into 2 groups based on the presence or absence of functional mitral regurgitation.

ResultsPapillary muscle T1 time was significantly elevated in DCM patients with mitral regurgitation n = 22 in comparison to those without mitral regurgitation n = 18 anterior papillary muscle: 1127 ± 36 msec vs 1063 ± 16 msec, p < 0.05; posterior papillary muscle: 1124 ± 30 msec vs 1062 ± 19 msec, p < 0.05, but LV T1 time was similar 1129 ± 38 msec vs 1134 ± 58 msec, p = 0.93. Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that papillary muscle native T1 time β = 0.10, 95 % CI: 0.05–0.17, p < 0.05 is significantly correlated with mitral regurgitant fraction. Elevated papillary muscle T1 time was associated with larger diameter, longer length and decreased papillary muscle shortening all p values <0.05.

ConclusionsIn DCM, papillary muscle native T1 time is significantly elevated and related to mitral regurgitant fraction.
