• Duration of elevated heart rate Is an important predictor of exercise-induced troponin elevation 

      Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Kleiven, Øyunn; Auestad, Bjørn Henrik; Eftestøl, Trygve Christian; Oskal, Kay Raymond; Nygård, Martin; Skadberg, Øyvind; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Melberg, Tor Harald; Gjesdal, Knut; Ørn, Stein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background The precise mechanisms causing cardiac troponin (cTn) increase after exercise remain to be determined. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of heart rate (HR) on exercise‐induced cTn increase by ...
    • Endurance exercise training volume is not associated with progression of coronary artery calcification 

      Kleiven, Øyunn; Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Omland, Torbjørn; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Frøysa, Vidar; Erevik, Christine B.; Greve, Ole Jacob; Melberg, Tor Harald; Auestad, Bjørn Henrik; Skadberg, Øyvind; Edvardsen, Thor; Ørn, Stein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background Recent cross‐sectional studies have suggested a dose‐dependent relationship between lifelong exposure to physical activity and the burden of calcified coronary artery disease (CAD). No longitudinal studies have ...
    • Occult obstructive coronary artery disease is associated with prolonged cardiac troponin elevation following strenuous exercise 

      Kleiven, Øyunn; Omland, Torbjørn; Skadberg, Øyvind; Melberg, Tor Harald; Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Auestad, Bjørn Henrik; Bergseth, Rolf; Greve, Ole Jacob; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Ørn, Stein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Background: Sudden cardiac death among middle-aged recreational athletes is predominantly due to myocardial ischaemia. This study examined whether measuring cardiac troponin I and T (cTnI and cTnT) after strenuous exercise ...
    • Race duration and blood pressure are major predictors of exercise-induced cardiac troponin elevation 

      Kleiven, Øyunn; Omland, Torbjørn; Skadberg, Øyvind; Melberg, Tor Harald; Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Auestad, Bjørn Henrik; Bergseth, Rolf; Greve, Ole Jacob; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Ørn, Stein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Background: The underlying mechanisms of the exercise-induced increase in cardiac troponins (cTn) are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to identify independent determinants of exercise-induced cTn increase in a ...
