Exercise-induced increase in lipid peroxidation in patients with chronic heart failure: relation to exercise intolerance.

Cardiology 2007 9;108(4):307-13. Epub 2007 Feb 9.

Department of Cardiology, Siyami Ersek Cardiovascular Research and Training Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Little is known about the relationship between exercise intolerance and lipid peroxidation in chronic heart failure (CHF) patients. This study was designed to investigate the relationship between exercise-induced plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) changes in CHF patients and to determine whether there is any association between plasma MDA levels and exercise capacity assessed by cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

Methods: Cardiopulmonary exercise testing was applied to 31 CHF patients (16 ischemic, 15 idiopathic) and controls. Rest and peak exercise blood samples were analyzed for MDA.

Results: Patients with CHF had elevation of plasma MDA levels during exercise compared with controls (p < 0.001 vs. p = 0.588). MDA change remained significant both in ischemic and idiopathic cardiomyopathy groups (p < 0.05 and p < 0.01, respectively). Delta MDA (peak exercise MDA - rest MDA) showed significant inverse correlation with peak oxygen consumption in patients with CHF.

Conclusion: Lipid peroxidation is increased in patients with CHF during exercise regardless of etiology, and this increase is inversely related to oxygen consumption.
