emanating from or pertaining to exertion.

exertional rhabdomyolysis
occurs as an acute recumbency or immobility state when muscle masses disrupt during exercise. Occurs as equine paralytic myoglobinuria in horses after unaccustomed exercise while on a heavy carbohydrate diet, in sheep and cattle after violent physical exercise, in racing greyhounds and as capture or transport myopathy in deer and other wildlife. Called also azoturia, Monday morning disease, tying up syndrome, capture myopathy.


disintegration of striated muscle fibers with excretion of myoglobin in the urine.

In contrast to nonspecific elevations of myoglobin and creatine kinase MB (CK-MB) in athletes due to exertional rhabdomyolysis of trained skeletal muscle(1,2), reported increases in cardiospecific troponins after competition may indicate silent injury to the myocardium (3,4,5,6,7,8).
Contents in Brief: In contrast to non-specific post-race elevations in myoglobin and CK-MB as early-stage markers for AMI due to exertional rhabdomyolysis of trained skeletal muscle, late-stage markers including cTnI and cTnT remained negative by rapid quantitative methods within 24 hours after competition.
