Abstract[Background] Prompt coronary thrombus resolution, reducing time of ischemia, improves cardiac recovery. The factors triggered by ischemia that contribute to the clinical outcome are not fully known. We hypothesize that unabated inflammation due to cardiac ischemia may be a contributing factor.
[Aims] As a proof-of-concept, we evaluated the effect of short-term myocardial ischemia on the local and systemic inflammatory response.
[Methods] Pigs underwent either 90-min mid-left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery balloon occlusion (infarct size 25% ± 1% left ventricle; 29% heart function deterioration) or a sham-operation procedure. Peri-infarcted and non-ischemic cardiac tissue was obtained for histopathologic, molecular and immunohistochemical analysis of inflammatory markers [interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), modified C-reactive protein (mCRP), and human alveolar macrophage-56 (HAM-56)]. Blood (femoral vein) was withdrawn prior to myocardial infarction (MI) induction (t = 0) and at 30 and 90 min to evaluate: (i) systemic cytokine levels (IL-6, TNF-α, CRP); (ii) proinflammatory gene and protein expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of tissue factor (TF), cyclo-oxygenase-2 (Cox-2), monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), and CRP; and (iii) platelet activation (assessed by perfusion studies and RhoA activation).
[Results] Short-term ischemia triggered cardiac IL-6 and TNF-α expression, recruitment of inflammatory cells, and mCRP expression in infiltrated macrophages (P < 0.05 vs. t = 0 and sham). PBMC mRNA and protein expression of MCP-1, Cox-2 and TF was significantly increased by ischemia, whereas no differences were detected in CRP. Ischemia increased cardiac troponin-I, IL-6 and TNF-α systemic levels, and was associated with higher platelet deposition and RhoA activation (P < 0.001 vs. t = 0 and sham).
[Conclusion] Short-term myocardial ischemia, even without atherosclerosis, induces an inflammatory phenotype by inducing local recruitment of macrophages and systemic activation of mononuclear cells, and renders platelets more susceptible to activation.
