Cardiac troponin T release and inflammation demonstrated in marathon runners.
BACKGROUND As shown on the basis of highly sensitive assays, cardiac troponin release is now observed after physiological heart stress and in mild heart pathologies: both are [corrected] consideredExpand
Cardiac and renal function in a large cohort of amateur marathon runners
BackgroundParticipation of amateur runners in endurance races continues to increase. Previous studies of marathon runners have raised concerns about exercise-induced myocardial and renal dysfunctionExpand
Free-living heterotrophic euglenids from freshwater sites in mainland Australia
This paper presents new data on free-living heterotrophic euglenids (Euglenozoa, Protista) that were found at several freshwater sites in New South Wales, Northern Territory, and Queensland,Expand
Myocardial function in older male amateur marathon runners: assessment by tissue Doppler echocardiography, speckle tracking, and cardiac biomarkers.
BACKGROUND Participation of older men in endurance races continues to increase. Recent studies on marathon runners raised concerns about a transient myocardial dysfunction and damage. The aim of ourExpand
Galectin-3 increase in endurance athletes
Background Galectin-3 is a new and promising biomarker for heart failure and myocardial fibrosis. Although endurance exercise is a crucial element in cardiovascular disease prevention, theExpand
Exercise-induced changes of left ventricular diastolic function in postmenopausal amateur marathon runners: assessment by echocardiography and cardiac biomarkers
Purpose Diastolic dysfunction is common among elderly women. Recently, concerns regarding marathon-induced myocardial damage were raised among young male runners. The goal of our study was to assessExpand
Increased longitudinal contractility and diastolic function at rest in well-trained amateur Marathon runners: a speckle tracking echocardiography study
BackgroundRegular physical activity reduces cardiovascular risk. There is concern that Marathon running might acutely damage the heart. It is unknown to what extent intensive physical enduranceExpand
Single beat 3D echocardiography for the assessment of right ventricular dimension and function after endurance exercise: Intraindividual comparison with magnetic resonance imaging
BackgroundOur study compares new single beat 3D echocardiography (sb3DE) to cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) for the measurement of right ventricular (RV) dimension and functionExpand
Leukocyte, neutrophil, immature granulocyte counts and interleukin-6 are superior to procalcitonin, C-reactive protein and delta-He for detection of mild inflammation: data from marathon runners
Abstract Immature granulocytes (IGs) and differences between reticulocyte and erythrocyte haemoglobin content (delta-He) are now available as modern parameters on routine haematology analysers forExpand
