BACKGROUND: Lethal reperfusion injury has been associated with apoptotic cell death. Insulin and insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I/IGF-II) may modulate this cell death when administered at the onset of reperfusion after ischemia. We explored if antiapoptotic treatment with IGF-II could influence left ventricular function in an experimental model with cardiopulmonary bypass and repeated oxygenated blood cardioplegia.
METHODS: Twenty pigs underwent cardiopulmonary bypass with aortic cross-clamping for 60 minutes. In controls, hearts were arrested with cold, oxygenated blood cardioplegia repeated after 20 and 40 minutes. In the intervention group IGF-II was added to the cardioplegic solution at 20 and 40 minutes. After declamping and weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass, left ventricular global and local function was evaluated with a conductance catheter and tissue velocity imaging. Three hours after declamping the anterior left ventricle wall was divided in three layers and studied for blood flow rate with microspheres, Akt phosphorylation, and caspase-3 cleavage. Troponin-T levels were measured at baseline and after 3 hours of reperfusion.
RESULTS: A reduction of myocardial levels of cleaved caspase-3 (p < 0.001) was found in the subendocardial wall layer and serum troponin-T was reduced (p < 0.025) in the IGF-II group 3 hours after declamping. In the IGF-II treated animals, left ventricular preload recruitable stroke work was low 1 hour after declamping and increased to levels higher than in controls (p < 0.025) 3 hours after declamping. Other cardiac variables did not differ between groups.
CONCLUSIONS: When added to repeated cold blood cardioplegia, IGF-II reduces apoptosis and ischemia-reperfusion injury with minor effects on cardiac function.
