BACKGROUND Postconditioning is a potential cardioprotective strategy that has demonstrated conflicting and variable reductions in infarct size in human trials. OBJECTIVES To determine whether postconditioning could increase the extent of myocardial salvage in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether ischemic postconditioning (IPC) could improve peripheral endothelial function in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Of 102 patients randomly assigned to an IPC or standard protocol to study infarct size(More)
