The efficacy of remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) in high-risk cardiac surgery is uncertain. In this study, 96 adults undergoing high-risk cardiac surgery were randomised to RIPC (3 cycles of 5 min of upper-limb ischemia induced by inflating a blood pressure cuff to 200 mmHg with 5 min of reperfusion) or control. Main endpoints were plasma high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTNT) levels at 6 and 12 h, worst post-operative acute kidney injury (AKI) based on RIFLE criteria, and noradrenaline… CONTINUE READING
