Abstract

Background: Cardiac dysfunction has significant impact on morbidity and mortality in patients with mitochondrial disorders. Cardiac screening tests are generally recommended because cardiac dysfunction can occur at any point in the disease course, and is amenable to treatment. However there is no clear evidence indicating the best screening strategy in patients with mitochondrial myopathy. Methods: Systematic review of the literature for cardiac investigations in adult patients with mitochondrial myopathy. We considered 1303 relevant abstracts, from which 58 full-length articles were reviewed. Seventeen articles including 701 total participants met inclusion criteria. Data extracted included age, diagnosis, and results from ECG, echocardiogram, cardiac MRI, nuclear medicine studies, and Holter monitor. Results: We identified echocardiogram and ECG as the principal screening modalities, that identify cardiac structural (26%) and conduction abnormalities (37%) in patients from various mitochondrial myopathy syndromes. Holter monitor was not a high yield investigation and limited studies were identified using cardiac MRI or nuclear medicine. Conclusions: We recommend screening with ECG and echocardiogram every 1-2 years in MERRF/MELAS, and every 3-5 years in milder syndromes when cardiac symptoms are not present. Only five of the included studies provided any follow-up data. We recommend studies of natural history, therapeutic response, and of cardiac MRI as areas for future study.
