Inhalation of hydrogen gas reduces infarct size in the rat model of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury.

Inhalation of hydrogen (H(2)) gas has been demonstrated to limit the infarct volume of brain and liver by reducing ischemia-reperfusion injury in rodents. When translated into clinical practice, this therapy must be most frequently applied in the treatment of patients with acute myocardial infarction, since angioplastic recanalization of infarct-related… CONTINUE READING
