Generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS) are the main risk factor for sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP). Also, among the several mechanisms underlying SUDEP there is the cardiac dysfunction. So, we aimed to evaluate the impact of the number of seizures on heart function and morphology in rats with epilepsy. Rats were randomized into three groups: Sham (without epilepsy), 5 S, and 10 S groups, referred as rats with epilepsy with a total of 5 or 10 GTCS, respectively. Epilepsy was induced by electrical amygdala kindling. The ventricular function was analyzed by the Langendorff technique and challenged by ischemia/reperfusion protocol. Cardiac fibrosis and hypertrophy were analyzed by histology. We also analyzed cardiac metalloproteinases (MMP2 and MMP9), ERK 1/2 and phosphorylated ERK1/2 (P-ERK) by western blot; microRNA-21 and -320 by RT-PCR; and oxidative stress (TBARS, catalase activity and nitrite) by biochemical analysis. Only the 5S group presented decreased values of ventricular function at before ischemia/reperfusion (baseline): intraventricular systolic pressure, developed intraventricular pressure, positive and negative dP/dt. During ischemia/reperfusion protocol, the variation of the ventricular function did not differ among groups. Both 5S and 10S groups had increased cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and fibrosis compared to Sham, but in the 5S group, these alterations were higher than in the 10S group. The 5S group increased in microRNA-21 and decreased in microRNA-320 expression compared to Sham and the 10S group. The 10S group increased in MMP9 and decreased in P-ERK/ERK expression, and increased in nitrite content compared to both Sham and the 5S group. Therefore, seizures impair cardiac function and morphology, probably through microRNA modulation. The continuation of seizures seems to exert a preconditioning-like stimulus that fails to compensate the cardiac tissue alteration.
