BACKGROUND: This study was designed to assess whether the protective effect of ischemic preconditioning can be adapted for myocardium undergoing 6 hr of ischemia. METHODS: Eighteen isolated rat hearts were perfused with oxygen-bicarbonated Krebs-Henseleit buffer in the Langendorff mode for 35 min (group A, controls) or perfused in the Langendorff apparatus for 20 min, followed by 5 min of global normothermic ischemia and 10 min of buffer perfusion (group B, preconditioning) or followed by two cycles of 2.5 min of global normothermic ischemia plus 5 min of buffer perfusion (group C, preconditioning). The hearts were then arrested and preserved for 6 hr with Bretschneider's histidine-tryptophan-potassium cardioplegic solution at 4 degrees C, followed by 30 min of reperfusion. Recovery of cardiac function, postischemic enzyme leakage, and intracellular calcium concentration were compared. RESULTS: After 6 hr of ischemia, the hearts that underwent preconditioning in groups B and C showed better recovery of left ventricular developed pressure (P<0.05), a lower end-diastolic pressure level (P<0.05), less leakage of creatine kinase, and a lower intracellular calcium concentration than those in group A. There were no statistical differences in the rate of recovery of coronary flow. CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrated that ischemic preconditioning improves myocardial functional recovery after 6 hr of hypothermic preservation in the isolated rat heart. Preconditioning might be useful for preserving the heart against long-term ischemia/reperfusion injury.
