Intermittent ischemia but not ischemic preconditioning is effective in restoring bile flow after ischemia reperfusion injury in the livers of aged rats.


BACKGROUND/AIMS Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) and intermittent ischemia (INT) reduce liver injury following ischemia reperfusion in liver resections. Aged livers are at higher risk for ischemia reperfusion injury, but little is known of the effectiveness of IPC and INT in aged livers. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of IPC and INT on… (More)
