Acute response and chronic stimulus for cardiac structural and functional adaptation in a professional boxer

MetadataShow full item record
The individual response to acute and chronic changes in cardiac structure and function to intense exercise training is not fully understood and therefore evidence in this setting may help to improve the timing and interpretation of pre-participation cardiac screening. The following case report highlights an acute increase in right ventricular (RV) size and a reduction in left ventricular (LV) basal radial function with concomitant increase at the mid-level in response to a week’s increase in training volume in a professional boxer. These adaptations settle by the second week; however, chronic physiological adaptation occurs over a 12-week period.Electrocardiographic findings demonstrate an acute lateral T-wave inversion at 1 week, which revert to baseline for the duration of training. It appears that a change in training intensity and volume generates an acute response within the RV that acts as a stimulus for chronic adaptation in this professional boxer.

Short-term adaptation and chronic cardiac remodelling to high altitude in lowlander natives and Himalayan Sherpa Stembridge, Mike; Ainslie, Philip; Shave, Rob (Wiley, 2014-10-18)New Findings - What is the topic of this review? At high altitude, the cardiovascular system must adapt in order to meet the metabolic demand for oxygen. This review summarizes recent findings relating to short‐term and ...
Ventricular structure, function and mechanics at high altitude: chronic remodelling in Sherpa verses short-term lowlander adaptation. Unknown author (American Physiological Society, 2014-08-01)Short-term, high-altitude (HA) exposure raises pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) and decreases left-ventricular (LV) volumes. However, relatively little is known of the long-term cardiac consequences of prolonged ...
