Non-ischemic myocardial preconditioning
The reduction of infarct size produced by brief ischemic episodes prior to a sustained occlusion of a coronary artery, called ischemic preconditioning, is a well known phenomenon that occurs in several species, but its ...
MOLECULAR MECHANISMS IN LIVER ISCHEMIC-REPERFUSION INJURY AND ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING
(SOCIEDAD MEDICA DE SANTIAGO, 2005)
Protecting the heart from ischemia/reperfusion injury: an update on remote ischemic preconditioning and postconditioning
(Lippincott Williams, 2017-11-01)
Purpose of review: The most effective strategy for reducing acute myocardial ischemic injury is timely and effective reperfusion. However, myocardial reperfusion can induce further cardiomyocyte death (reperfusion injury). ...
Induction of ischemic tolerance as a promising treatment against diabetic retinopathy
(Medknow Publications, 2014-09)
Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of acquired blindness, and it is the most common ischemic disorder of the retina. Available treatments are not very effective. Efforts to inhibit diabetic retinopathy have focused ...
Participation of mitochondrial permeability transition pore in the effects of ischemic preconditioning in hypertrophied hearts: Role of NO and mitoKATP
(Elsevier Ireland, 2013-06)
Background: The mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) plays an important role in ischemia–reperfusion in normotensive animals. Our study aims to define their participation in the ischemic preconditioning (IP) ...
Role of the parasympathetic nervous system in cardioprotection by remote hindlimb ischemic preconditioning
This investigation was designed to determine the participation of the vagus nerve and muscarinic receptors in the remote ischaemic preconditioning (rIPC) mechanism. New Zealand rabbits were anaesthetized, and the femoral ...
NON ISCHEMIC MYOCARDIAL PRECONDITIONING BY TACHYCARDIA AND EXERCISE
Myocardial preconditioning can be induced not only by ischemia but also by physiological stimuli like tachycardia and exercise. We studied in dogs the preconditioning effect of tachycardia. Five brief periods of tachycardia ...
Heart injury following intestinal ischemia reperfusion in rats is attenuated by association of ischemic preconditioning and adenosine
(Sociedade Brasileira para o Desenvolvimento da Pesquisa em Cirurgia, 2014-01-01)
PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of ischemic preconditioning (IPC) and adenosine as strategies to protect cardiac injury caused by intestinal IR in rats, based on increasing in adenosine bioavailability and improvement ...
