AIM To study whether the protective effects of ischemic preconditioning against rat small intestine ischemia/reperfusion injury could be mediated by KATP channel opener. METHODS Preconditioning (Pc) was induced by 3 cycles of 8-min superior mesenteric artery (SMA) occlusion and 10-min reperfusion before prolonged ischemia.
