Ischemic Preconditioning Increases Myocardial Tolerance to Subsequent Ischemic Episodes

Abstract

It has long been recognized that a brief episode of myocardial ischemia causes reversible myocyte injury, "reversible" being defined by the fact that early restoration of arterial flow prevents infarction and permits eventual restoration of normal myocardial structure, function, and metabolism. However, numerous studies during the last 15 years1-5 have… (More)
