  • Postconditioning (PC) and insulin exert cardioprotection by activating phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K) signaling.

  • Because pressure overload exacerbates ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury, we tested the hypothesis that (i) pressure overload attenuates PC - and insulin-induced cardioprotection, an effect caused by reduced PI3K-Akt signaling and (ii) pressure unloading confers cardioprotection comparable to either PC or insulin.

  • Pressure unloading during reperfusion caused the most marked reduction in IS whereas pressure loading abolished PC-induced cardioprotection.

  • Wortmannin (PI3K inhibitor) partially reversed PC-induced cardioprotection, with IS being greater in the high-pressure group.

  • However, while this result strengthens the idea that mitochondrial energetics plays a crucial role in heart protection against chronic hypoxia, the direct relationship with CH-induced cardioprotection remains to be investigated.
