EECP Improves Cognitive Functions in Chronic Heart Failure Patients

OBJECTIVES:

Chronic heart failure (CHF) has been associated with an increased risk of poorer cognitive performance in older adults. Reversibility of cognitive impairment after medical treatment has been reported, although the restorative effects of enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) on cognitive performance have not been studied. We investigated the effect of EECP on cognitive functions in CHF patients.

STUDY DESIGN:

Thirty-six individuals (mean age: 66±8 years) who were diagnosed with CHF and were New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II-III and Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) Class II-III participated in this study. Neuropsychological assessment was performed in these patients.

RESULTS:

Patients in the EECP treatment group showed a statistically significant improvement in spontaneous naming (p=0.011) and forward row score of the attention subset among domains of cognition (p=0.020) and interference time of executive function (p=0.012).

CONCLUSION:

Enhanced external counter pulsation resulted in improvement in all domains of cognitive functions except verbal and visual memory tests.

目的

慢性心臟衰竭(CHF)已與老年人較差的認知表現風險增加有關。報導了經醫療治療後認知損害的可逆性,然而,體外反搏治療(EECP)對認知表現的恢復效應尚未有研究。我們研究了EECP對CHF患者的 認知功能 的影響。

研究設計

本研究共有36名被診斷為CHF且紐約心臟協會(NYHA)分級為II-III級和加拿大心血管學會(CCS)分級為II-III級的個體參與(平均年齡:66±8歲)。對這些患者進行了神經心理評估。

結果

接受EECP治療的患者在自發命名、認知領域中的前向行分數和執行功能的干擾時間(p=0.012)等方面顯示出統計學上顯著的改善。

結論

體外反搏治療改善 認知功能 的所有領域(除了口語和視覺記憶測試)。
