Background. To deter­mine the ­effect of the tol­er­able lim­i­ta­tion ­time of pro­longed ische­mia ­after ischem­ic pre­con­di­tion­ing on ­postischem­ic func­tion­al recov­ery and ­infarct ­size reduc­tion in the rab­bit ­heart.
Methods. White rab­bits (n=30) ­were ­used for Langendorff per­fu­sion. Control ­hearts ­were per­fused at 37°C for 180 min; 30 min glo­bal ischemia ­hearts (30GI) ­received 30 min glo­bal ische­mia and 120 min reper­fu­sion; IPC+30GI ­hearts ­received 5 min ­zero ­flow glo­bal ische­mia and 5 min reper­fu­sion ­prior to 30 min glo­bal ische­mia; 20 min glo­bal ischemia ­hearts (20GI) ­received 20 min glo­bal ische­mia and 120 min reper­fu­sion; IPC+20GI ­hearts ­received 5 min ­zero ­flow glo­bal ische­mia and 5 min reper­fu­sion ­prior to 20 min glo­bal ische­mia.
Results. Infarct ­size in the 30GI ­hearts was 33.5±4.0% and 1.7±0.5% in the con­trol ­hearts. The 20GI ­hearts and IPC+30GI ­hearts ­decreased ­infarct ­size, as com­pared ­with the 30GI ­hearts (13.0±1.8% and 16.6±1.7%, respec­tive­ly; p<0.001, 20GI vs 30GI; p<0.01, IPC+30GI vs 30GI; p>0.05, 20GI vs IPC+30GI) but did not ­enhance ­postischem­ic func­tion­al recov­ery. The IPC+20GI ­hearts (3.5±0.6%) sig­nif­i­cant­ly ­decreased ­infarct ­size as com­pared ­with the 20GI ­hearts (p<0.05, IPC+20GI vs 20GI), and ­there was no sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence ­between the IPC+20GI and the con­trol ­hearts (p>0.05), but the IPC+20GI ­hearts did not ­enhance ­postischem­ic func­tion­al recov­ery.
Conclusions. A 20 min ische­mia may be the tol­er­able limit­a­ta­tion ­time of pro­longed ische­mia ­after ischem­ic pre­con­di­tion­ing in an iso­lat­ed rab­bit ­heart mod­el.
