  • Critically timed reperfusion is a prerequisite for survival of ischaemic myocardium. However, reperfusion may have an injurious component, which in experimental models appears to be mediated by reperfusion-induced augmentation of the inflammatory response and generation of reactive oxygen free radicals. Four expressions of myocardial reperfusion injury have been defined, i.e. reperfusion arrhythmias, post-ischaemic contractile dysfunction (myocardial stunning), coronary vascular and… CONTINUE READING
