The aim of the present proposal is to investigate the development of distinct morphological, functional, biochemical and molecular aspects of short- and long-term sport-induced changes in the heart, to get a better understanding on the (patho)physiology of athlete's heart. The main goal of our research is to deepen our knowledge on the proper differentiation between beneficial (physiological) and harmful (pathological) consequences of professional sport, thereby effectively preventing potential cardiovascular complications of athletes.
1. Sport specific questionnaire, patient history and physical examinations - In our detailed questionnaire, specific information is collected about quantity and quality of training, personal and family history and presence of sport specific and general symptoms.
2. Laboratory biochemical examination - Besides the regular routine laboratory parameters, several specific parameters associated with physical exercise are planned to be measured, such as cardiac biomarkers.
3. 12-lead ECG - Resting standard 12-lead digital ECG will be recorded. Extended analysis will be performed according to the latest recommendations.
4. Holter ECG - 24 hour Holter ECG will be recorded. Extended Holter ECG analysis will be performed.
5. Detailed echocardiography
6. Detailed CMR examination
7. Body composition analysis - With a sophisticated bio-electrical impedance analysis, comprehensive whole body composition and hydration analysis will be performed.
8. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing - Sport specific protocols will be used on both treadmill and bike ergometers.

Coaching has been often viewed as a context within which coaches operate to largely bring about changes in athlete's performance and wellbeing. One key factor to successful outcomes in coaching is the...
Strenuous and chronic exercise training can have detrimental effects on cardiac morphology and function. Our aim was to evaluate the cardiac adaptation between 2 different specialties' endurance athle...
Rationale: Downregulation of the pacemaking ion channel, HCN4, and the corresponding ionic current, If, underlies exercise training-induced sinus bradycardia in rodents. If this occurs in humans, it c...
The regular monitoring of athletes is important to fine-tune training and detect early symptoms of overreaching. Therefore the aim of this study was to determine if a noninvasive submaximal running te...
High-arched (HA) athletes exhibit greater lower extremity stiffness during functional tasks than low-arched (LA) athletes. The contributions of skeletal and muscular structures to stiffness may underl...
The study of NUTRITION PROCESSES during EXERCISE and ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE as well as specific NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS of ATHLETES and the relationship between NUTRITIONAL STATUS and NUTRITION DISORDERS in athletes.
The heart of the fetus of any viviparous animal. It refers to the heart in the postembryonic period and is differentiated from the embryonic heart (HEART/embryology) only on the basis of time.
Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
Rhythmic compression of the heart by pressure applied manually over the sternum (closed heart massage) or directly to the heart through an opening in the chest wall (open heart massage). It is done to reinstate and maintain circulation. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Heart sounds caused by vibrations resulting from the flow of blood through the heart. Heart murmurs can be examined by HEART AUSCULTATION, and analyzed by their intensity (6 grades), duration, timing (systolic, diastolic, or continuous), location, transmission, and quality (musical, vibratory, blowing, etc).
