Jinlei Nie, Haifeng Zhang, Zhaowei Kong, Keith George, Jonathan P Little, Tomas K Tong, Feifei Li, Qingde Shi
We evaluated the influence of 12 weeks high-intensity interval training (HIIT, repeated 4-min cycling at 90% V̇O2max interspersed with 3-min rest, 200-300 KJ/session, 3-4 days wk-1 ) and work-equivalent moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT, continuous cycling at 60% V̇O2max ) on resting cardiac troponin T (cTnT) as well as exercise-induced cTnT appearance. Forty-eight sedentary obese young women were randomly assigned to HIIT, MICT, or a control group. V̇O2max and body composition were measured before and after training...

OBJECTIVES: While regular physical exercise has many health benefits, strenuous physical exercise may have a negative impact on cardiac function. The 'Berlin Beat of Running' study focused on feasibility and diagnostic value of continuous ECG monitoring in recreational endurance athletes during a marathon race. We hypothesised that cardiac arrhythmias and especially atrial fibrillation are frequently found in a cohort of recreational endurance athletes. The main secondary hypothesis was that pathological laboratory findings in these athletes are (in part) associated with cardiac arrhythmias...

RATIONALE: Following prolonged endurance events such as marathons, elevated levels of cardiospecific biomarkers are commonly reported. Although transiently raised levels are generally not considered to indicate clinical myocardial damage, comprehension of this phenomenon remains incomplete. The popularity of high-intensity interval training highlights a paucity of research measuring cardiac biomarker response to this type of exercise. This a posteriori case report discusses the elevation of cardiac troponins (cTn) associated with short interval, high-intensity exercise...

BACKGROUND: Prolonged endurance exercise is known to cause elevation of cardiac troponin I (cTnI). Previous studies have reported the correlation of several factors with exercise-induced cTnI release. However, the investigation of the predictors for elevated cTnI and postrace kinetics of cTnI after ultramarathon running is lacking, especially in an Oriental population. METHODS: Twenty-six participants, including eight hepatitis B virus carrier (HBVc) runners, who finished a 100-km ultramarathon in Taiwan were enrolled...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to investigate whether patients with mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia will have high resting and post-mental stress high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-cTnI). BACKGROUND: Hs-cTnI is a marker of myocardial necrosis, and its elevated levels are associated with adverse outcomes. Hs-cTnI levels may increase with exercise in patients with coronary artery disease. Mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia is also linked to adverse outcomes...

This study characterized cardiac troponin T (cTnT) appearance and associated histological evidence of reversible or irreversible changes in myocardial ultrastructure, determined via electron microscopy, in rats undertaking isoproterenol (ISO) infusion or an endurance exercise challenge. Male rats were randomized into ISO and exercise groups. In ISO trials rats were killed 5 h (ISO-5H) and 24 h (ISO-REC19H) after a single ISO or saline injection (SAL-5H; SAL-REC19H). In the exercise trials rats were killed before, as a control (EXE-CON), immediately after (EXE-END5H) and 19 h after (EXE-REC19H) a 5-h bout of swimming with 5% body weight attached to their tail...

Although strenuous physical activity is known to cause notable perturbations in blood chemistries, only few studies exist observing exercise-induced simultaneous changes in biomarkers of health status. We compared markers of muscle, cardiovascular, renal, hepatic and inflammatory status at baseline and at 3-h and at 48-h postrace in recreational runners who successfully completed either a marathon (mean age 27 ± 13 years, finishing time 199 ± 8 min, n = 4) or half-marathon (mean age 38 ± 13 years, finishing time 131 ± 6 min, n = 6) race...

Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC; repeated short reversible periods of ischemia) protects the heart against subsequent ischemic injury. We explored whether RIPC can attenuate post-exercise changes in cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and cardiac function in healthy individuals. In a randomized, crossover design, 14 participants completed 1-h cycling time trials (TT) on two separate visits; preceded by RIPC (arms/legs, 4 × 5-min 220 mmHg), or SHAM-RIPC (20 mmHg). Venous blood was sampled before and 0-, 1-, and 3-h post-exercise to assess high sensitivity (hs-)cTnT and brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP)...

Cardiac troponins are the preferred biomarkers in diagnostic of myocardial infarction, but these markers also can rise in response to exercise. Multiple studies have assessed troponins post-exercise, but the results have varied and there have been disagreements about the mechanism of troponin release. The aim of this paper was to review the literature, and to consider factors and mechanisms regarding exercise-induced increase of troponin. 145 studies were found after a search in pubmed and inclusion of additional articles found in the reference list of the first articles...

Prolonged endurance-type exercise is associated with elevated cardiac troponin (cTn) levels in asymptomatic recreational athletes. It is unclear whether exercise-induced cTn release mirrors a physiological or pathological underlying process. The aim of this study was to provide a direct comparison of the release kinetics of high-sensitivity cTnI (hs-cTnI) and T (hs-cTnT) after endurance-type exercise. In addition, the effect of remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC), a cardioprotective strategy that limits ischemia-reperfusion injury, was investigated in a randomized controlled crossover manner...

Physical exercise is recommended for a healthy lifestyle. Strenuous exercise, however, may trigger the haemostatic system, increasing the risk of vascular thrombotic events and the incidence of primary cardiac arrest. Our goal was to study the effects of strenuous exercise on risk factors of cardiovascular disease. Blood was collected from 92 healthy volunteers who participated in the amateur version of the pro-tour Amstel Gold cycling race, before and directly after the race. Thrombin generation showed a shortening of the lag time and time to peak and an increase of the velocity index...

17-year old male was admitted after syncope during exercise, exhibiting transient ST-elevation, raised troponin T levels and regionally hypokinetic myocardium. Further investigation revealed a left main coronary artery arising from the right sinus valsalva, a narrow vessel with an intramural course resulting in compression during systole. The patient had presented previously with chest pain and syncope during physical exercise. After CT-angiography, ECG, Tilt-test and ECHO he was diagnosed with vasomotor induced syncope...

Elevation of resting high-sensitivity troponin (hs-Tn) holds prognostic value in heart failure (HF), but its pathophysiological meaning is unclear. We aimed to investigate hs-Tn elevation after maximal exercise in patients with systolic HF and its neurohormonal and hemodynamic correlates: 30 patients diagnosed with systolic HF (left ventricular ejection fraction 32 ± 8%, mean ± SD), on guideline-directed medical therapy and not recognized inducible ischemia, underwent maximal cardiopulmonary stress test, with assay of plasma N-terminal proB-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), norepinephrine (NE), and hs-TnT (hs-TnT) at baseline, peak, and 1 and 4 hours after exercise...

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of acute, intermittent exercise performed in hypoxic environments on the release of cardiac troponin (cTn). Ten well-trained, male marathon runners (22.1 ± 2.6 years, 64.0 ± 4.9 kg and 177.3 ± 3.9 cm) completed three intermittent exercise protocols under normoxic (trial N) and hypoxic (trial AH and RH) conditions. In trial N, the fraction of inspiration oxygen (FIO2 ) was 21.0% and exercise intensity was 90% and 50% normoxic velocity of VO2max (vVO2max)...

We evaluated the influence of a 14-wk endurance running program on the exercise-induced release of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) and NH2-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP). Fifty-eight untrained participants were randomized to supervised endurance exercise (14 wk, 3-4 days/wk, 120-240 min/wk, 65-85% of maximum heart rate) or a control group. At baseline and after the training program, hs-cTnT and NT-proBNP were assessed before and 5 min, 1 h, 3 h, 6 h, 12 h, and 24 h after a 60-min maximal running test...
