Purpose. This study was ­designed to inves­ti­gate the ­effect of a newly syn­the­sised sodi­um/hydro­gen ion ­exchange inhib­i­tor, SM-20550, on ischae­mia-reper­fu­sion ­induced inju­ry in a rat hind limb model.
Methods. In order to ­induce ischae­mia of the hind limbs, the abdom­i­nal aorta just dis­tal to the renal arter­ies and the bilat­er­al femo­ral arter­ies were ­clamped. Nineteen rats were divid­ed into three ­groups. In the sham group (n=5), the ves­sels were only dis­sect­ed and a vehi­cle solu­tion was admin­is­tered. In the con­trol group (n=7), the ves­sels were ­clamped for five hours, and a vehi­cle solu­tion was admin­is­tered 10 min­utes prior to clamp­ing and con­tin­ued for five hours after reper­fu­sion. In the SM group (n=7), clamp­ing was main­tained for five hours with a bolus injec­tion of SM-20550 and con­tin­u­ous infu­sion of the solu­tion for five hours after reper­fu­sion. Water con­tent of the left gas­troc­ne­mi­us mus­cle was cal­cu­lat­ed. The right gas­troc­ne­mi­us was fixed in 10% for­mal­in. A trans­verse thin sec­tion was ­stained with anti- myo­glo­bin anti­body. Stained cells of the right gas­troc­ne­mi­us were count­ed and the myo­glo­bin stain­ing index was cal­cu­lat­ed.
Results. Water con­tent was sig­nif­i­cant­ly (p<0.002) lower in the SM group than in the con­trol group. The myo­glo­bin stain­ing index was sig­nif­i­cant­ly (p<0.01) high­er in the SM group than in the con­trol group. There was no sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence ­between the con­trol and the SM ­groups in crea­ti­nine phos­phok­i­nase (CPK) and lac­tate dehy­drog­e­nase (LDH).
Conclusions. Our ­results indi­cate that the sodi­um/hydro­gen ion ­exchange inhib­i­tor, SM-20550, ame­li­o­rates oede­ma for­ma­tion and ischae­mia-reper­fu­sion ­induced inju­ry of the skel­e­tal mus­cle.
