Abstract

Previous studies suggest that myocardial contrast echocardiography using high mechanical index triggered ultrasound can be associated with increased frequency of the premature ventricular complex (PVC). However, this association has not been systematically examined. PB127 (Point Biomedical Corp, San Carlos, Calif) is a novel microsphere designed for evaluation of myocardial perfusion with ultrasound. PB127 myocardial contrast echocardiography was performed with triggered harmonic power Doppler in early/mid diastole (mechanical index ≤ 1.0). A total of 71 patients (cohort A) were studied at rest and another 64 (cohort B, age 62 ± 12.6 years) were allocated to stress. Continuous electrocardigraphy was recorded. The study evaluated premature ventricular complex frequency at baseline, during, and after infusion of PB127 (dose <0.175 mg/kg, .999) and was lower than untriggered intervals (P = .001) in B, suggesting that triggers do not cause PVC. PB127 does not cause increase PVC frequency during or after imaging with triggered ultrasound at mechanical index of 1.
