Ischemic preconditioning: postischemic structural changes in the brain.


Ischemic brain damage can be prevented or at least significantly reduced when there is a preceding brief ischemic period that does not exceed the threshold for tissue damage--a phenomenon termed "ischemic preconditioning" (ischemic PC). Experimental PC in rodents is now considered to be a model for transient ischemic attacks in humans, and there is… (More)
