Post-Game Elevations of Cardiac Marker Levels among Male Elite Floorball Players

Abstract [en]

Aim: Floorball, one of the most popular sports in Sweden, is classified as a high-intensity sport. Studies show that participating in high intensity exercise can lead to elevations in cardiac marker levels. To date, no studies have explored the impact of a floorball game. The purpose of this project was to examine the prevalence of elevated cardiac marker levels among male elite floorball players after a game. Methods: Twenty-three voluntary male elite floorball players participated in a standard game in November 2012. Blood samples were taken at 3 time-points: pre-game, immediately after and 2 hours after the game. Five players were tested 12 hours after the game. The cardiac markers P-CK-MBmass, P-Myoglobin, and P-Troponin T high sensitivity were analyzed using the Elecsys® ECLIA sandwich principle on Cobas 6000. Results: Some post-game elevations of cardiac markers were found in all participants. In 6 players out of 23, post-game P-Troponin T high sensitivity values rose over the limit (>14 ng/L) for acute myocardial infarction. The highest post-game P-Troponin T high sensitivity value observed was 65 ng/L. Conclusions: Elevated post-game cardiac marker levels were common, but the mechanism remains unclear. However, laboratory staff and clinicians should be aware of these phenomena, especially post-game P-Troponin T high sensitivity elevations. To try to understand the mechanism and thereby determine the clinical significance of these findings, expanded investigations should be performed.
