Clinical applications of remote ischaemic preconditioning in native and transplant acute kidney injury

Ischaemia–reperfusion (IR) injury is a composite of the injury sustained during a period of reduced or absent blood flow to a tissue or organ and the additional insult sustained upon reperfusion that limits the amount of tissue that can be salvaged. IR injury plays a central role in both native and transplant acute kidney injury (AKI). Native AKI is… CONTINUE READING
