Emerging evidence has suggested that patients with ischemic stroke (IS) and/or transient ischemic attack (TIA) are more likely to exhibit myocardial disorders, which can be reflected by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). ATP binding cassette transporter 1 (ABCB1) plays an important role in the development and progression of atherosclerotic pathology. The objective of the current study was to investigate the associations of ABCB1 C3435T polymorphism with echocardiographic performances among patients with acute ischemic stroke. Patients with IS or TIA, who were hospitalized and received TTE between October 2016 to March 2019, were enrolled in this study. Demographic data and echocardiographic parameters of each participant were recorded. We included 122 patients, with the respective distribution of 12.30%, 48.36%, and 39.34% in CC, CT, and TT genotypes. There were significant differences among the three ABCB1 types, with respect to RV (P = 0.036). The presence of the TT genotype was associated with increased MVE (OR = 0.13, P = 0.02) but correlated with decreased RV (OR = −1.46, P = 0.02). Our study indicated that ABCB1 C3435T polymorphism is associated with echocardiographic parameters among patients with acute ischemic stroke. The presence of the TT genotype is associated with diastolic function and cardiac hypertrophy.
