The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of physical exercise on the release of cardiac troponins (cTn). Sixteen dogs were evaluated: 8 clinically healthy (group A) and 8 (group B) with valve disease in the asymptomatic stage (class I, New York Heart Association). All dogs, after a complete cardiac evaluation, were forced to exercise on a motorized treadmill at three different speeds: 1.8 km/h (low speed), 3.6 km/h (medium speed), 5.4 km/h (high speed) lasting 6 minutes. Each test was performed on different days. Plasma samples were refrigerated at -20°. cTnI and cTnT were measured just before the running test, after a recovery period of 20 min, and then 2, 4, and 6 h later. cTnI concentrations increased in group A only at the highest speed, while cTnT did not change. These results suggest that exercise may induce myocardial suffering.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of physical exercise on the release of cardiac troponins (cTn). Sixteen dogs were evaluated: 8 clinically healthy (group A) and 8 (group B) with valve disease in the asymptomatic stage (class I, New York Heart Association). All dogs, after a complete cardiac evaluation, were forced to exercise on a motorized treadmill at three different speeds: 1.8 km/h (low speed), 3.6 km/h (medium speed), 5.4 km/h (high speed) lasting 6 minutes. Each test was performed on different days. Plasma samples were refrigerated at -20°. cTnI and cTnT were measured just before the running test, after a recovery period of 20 min, and then 2, 4, and 6 h later. cTnI concentrations increased in group A only at the highest speed, while cTnT did not change. These results suggest that exercise may induce myocardial suffering.
