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 our study was to compare the extent of marathon-induced myocardial dysfunction in young and older runners and to identify its potential correlation to elevated cardiac biomarkers. METHODS Twenty-eight older (aged 60-72 years) and 50 younger (22-59 years) male amateur athletes who participated in the… Expand
