Reactive Oxygen Species–Induced Stimulation of 5′AMP-Activated Protein Kinase Mediates Sevoflurane-Induced Cardioprotection
Background— 5′AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), a well-known regulator of cellular energy status, is also implicated in ischemic preconditioning leading to cardioprotection. We hypothesized that… Expand

BackgroundGlucose intolerance is a major health problem and is associated with increased risk of progression to type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. However, whether glucose… Expand
Anaesthetic management during open and percutaneous irreversible electroporation.
BACKGROUND Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a novel tumour ablation technique involving repetitive application of electrical energy around a tumour. The use of pulsed electrical gradients… Expand
Ablation of colorectal liver metastases by irreversible electroporation: results of the COLDFIRE-I ablate-and-resect study
ObjectivesIrreversible electroporation (IRE) is a new ablation technique that relies on high-voltage electrical pulses. This clinical study evaluates the pathological response of colorectal liver… Expand
Cardioprotection Via Activation of Protein Kinase C-&dgr; Depends on Modulation of the Reverse Mode of the Na+/Ca2+ Exchanger
Background— Pretreatment with the volatile anesthetic sevoflurane protects cardiomyocytes against subsequent ischemic episodes caused by a protein kinase C (PKC)-&dgr; mediated preconditioning… Expand
Sevoflurane-induced cardioprotection depends on PKC-alpha activation via production of reactive oxygen species.
BACKGROUND We previously demonstrated the involvement of the Ca2+-independent protein kinase C-delta (PKC-delta) isoform in sevoflurane-induced cardioprotection against ischaemia and reperfusion… Expand
