INTRODUCTION Ischaemic preconditioning (IP) has emerged as a powerful method of ameliorating ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury to the myocardium. This review investigates whether this phenomenon is universally applicable in modulating I/R injury to other tissues. METHODS A Medline search was conducted to identify both animal and human studies that described IP-induced protection from I/R injury in a variety of non-cardiac organ systems. Particular emphasis was placed on elucidation of… CONTINUE READING
