OBJECTIVE Ischemic postconditioning (POC) by brief episodes of ischemia performed just at the time of reperfusion can reduce infarct size in animal models and clinical settings of percutaneous coronary intervention. However, the clinical applicability of postconditioning in cardiac surgery remains to be determined. We investigated the effect of(More)
BACKGROUND Postconditioning by brief episodes of ischaemia performed just at the time of reperfusion have been shown to reduce the size of infarcts in animal models, and in the clinical setting of percutaneous cardiac intervention. The clinical applicability of postconditioning in cardiac surgery remains to be determined. We investigated the effect of(More)
The postoperative course of cyanotic patients is generally more complicated than in acyanotic patients. The ischemic postconditioning provides protection from myocardial injury. We conducted a randomized trial to evaluate the clinical benefits of postconditioning in patients undergoing repair of tetralogy of Fallot. Ninety-nine patients with tetralogy of(More)
BACKGROUND Remote ischemic perconditioning (RIPerc) is a new alternative of remote ischemic conditioning and has not been well studied. RIPerc attenuates myocardial injury when applied during cardiac surgery. However, its protective effects on other organs remain unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with rheumatic heart disease undergoing valve(More)
BACKGROUND Magnesium is often used to supplement cardioplegic solutions during cardiopulmonary bypass due to its cardioprotective effect during ischemia and reperfusion. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the effects of magnesium-supplemented cardioplegia versus an inactive (placebo) control cardioplegia on reducing cardiac injury after cardiac(More)
We previously found that remote ischemic perconditioning (RIPerc) was effective in attenuating myocardial injury during cardiac surgery. Given that microRNAs (miRs) act as an important player in ischemic/reperfusion (I/R) injury and apoptosis, this study aimed to investigate whether RIPerc reduces apoptosis in atrial myocardium and which apoptosis-related(More)

The status change of brain functional region of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of midnight-noon ebb-flow acupuncture method at stomach meridian was explored. Ten healthy volunteers were recruited. With identical sequence of magnetic resonance scans, fMRI data was collected respectively in the timely acupoint group, untimely acupoint group and(More)
OBJECTIVE Ischemic postconditioning effectively minimizes the ischemic/reperfusion injury, and the large series of case reports on its protective effects in cardiac surgery are limited. A randomized trial was conducted to investigate the effect of ischemic postconditioning on cardiopulmonary protection in children undergoing cardiac surgery for tetralogy of(More)
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine there is an optimum time to administer acupuncture at a particular acupoint. The present study used functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the timing effects of acupuncture at the Zusanli (ST36) acupoint. A total of 10 healthy volunteers and 10 post-stroke patients were recruited. The subjects received(More)
Bottom-up and top-down liquid-liquid extraction methods have been developed for the transfer of colloidal metal oxide particles, synthesized in an aqueous phase, to organic phases. In such methods the agglomeration of the particles during the drying stage was avoided. Hexadecylamine was used as an extractor for MnO2 particles in the bottom-up extraction to(More)
