Sevoflurane postconditioning has been proven to protect the hearts against ischemia/reperfusion injury, manifested mainly by improved cardiac function, reduced myocardial specific biomarker release, and decreased infarct size. This study is to observe the effects of sevoflurane postconditioning on reperfusion-induced ventricular arrhythmias and reactive(More)
AIM Sevoflurane postconditioning (SpostC) has been shown to protect the heart from ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. In this study, we examined whether SpostC affected autophagic flux in myocardial tissues that contributed to its cardioprotective effects in rats following acute I/R injury. METHODS SD rats underwent 30 min of left anterior descending(More)
