Pre-treatment with nimodipine and 7.5% hypertonic saline protects aged rats against postoperative cognitive dysfunction via inhibiting hippocampal neuronal apoptosis
Abstract Objective This study aimed to investigate the effects of pre-treatment with nimodipine and 7.5% hypertonic saline (HS) on postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) in aged rats. Methods Healthy Sprague-Dawley aged rats were randomly assigned into 4 groups: POCD group, nimodipine group, HS group, and nimodipine+HS group. Rats in POCD group received normal saline injection and then splenectomy 30min later under 1.8% isoflurane inhalation for 2h. In remaining groups, rats received injection of 1mg/kg nimodipine (i.p) and/or 4ml/kg 7.5% HS (i.v) and then splenectomy. Morris water maze test was performed before and after surgery. The hippocampus was harvested for the detection of neuronal apoptosis rate (AR), cytoplasmic calcium ([Ca 2+ ] i ), Bcl-2 and Bax mRNA expression and hippocampal neuronal ultrastructure. Results When compared with POCD group, the latency to escape, neuronal AR, [Ca 2+ ] i , Bax mRNA expression and Bax/Bcl-2 ratio reduced dramatically, but the times of crossing the platform and Bcl-2 mRNA expression increased significantly ( P 2+ ] i , Bax mRNA expression and Bax/Bcl-2 ratio reduced markedly, but the times of crossing the platform and Bcl-2 mRNA expression increased significantly in nimodipine+HS group as compared to nimodipine group and NS group ( P Conclusion Pre-treatment with both nimodipine and 7.5% HS exerts better protective effects, which is related to the inhibition of hippocampal neuronal apoptosis.
