Aerobic interval training reduces inducible ventricular arrhythmias in diabetic mice after myocardial infarction

, : Aerobic interval training reduces inducible ventricular arrhythmias in diabetic mice after myocardial infarction. Basic Research in Cardiology 110(4): 44-44

Diabetes mellitus (DM) increases the risk of heart failure after myocardial infarction (MI), and aggravates ventricular arrhythmias in heart failure patients. Although exercise training improves cardiac function in heart failure, it is still unclear how it benefits the diabetic heart after MI. To study the effects of aerobic interval training on cardiac function, susceptibility to inducible ventricular arrhythmias and cardiomyocyte calcium handling in DM mice after MI (DM-MI). Male type 2 DM mice (C57BLKS/J Lepr (db) /Lepr (db) ) underwent MI or sham surgery. One group of DM-MI mice was submitted to aerobic interval training running sessions during 6 weeks. Cardiac function and structure were assessed by echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging, respectively. Ventricular arrhythmias were induced by high-frequency cardiac pacing in vivo. Protein expression was measured by Western blot. DM-MI mice displayed increased susceptibility for inducible ventricular arrhythmias and impaired diastolic function when compared to wild type-MI, which was associated with disruption of cardiomyocyte calcium handling and increased calcium leak from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. High-intensity exercise recovered cardiomyocyte function in vitro, reduced sarcoplasmic reticulum diastolic calcium leak and significantly reduced the incidence of inducible ventricular arrhythmias in vivo in DM-MI mice. Exercise training also normalized the expression profile of key proteins involved in cardiomyocyte calcium handling, suggesting a potential molecular mechanism for the benefits of exercise in DM-MI mice. High-intensity aerobic exercise training recovers cardiomyocyte function and reduces inducible ventricular arrhythmias in infarcted diabetic mice.
