Effects of isoflurane postconditioning on chronic phase of ischemia-reperfusion heart injury in rats.


INTRODUCTION The application of isoflurane in a postconditioning manner, during early reperfusion of ischemic myocardium, reduces the infarct size. Its favorable effect on highly vascularized granulation tissue formation is very important considering the fact that increased genesis of blood vessels in peri-infarct zone reduces the infarct size and improves… (More)
