Perfluorocarbon emulsion prevents eicoasanoid release in skeletal muscle ischemia and reperfusion.


Eicosanoids play an important role in mediating deleterious effects following skeletal muscle ischemia-reperfusion injury. It has previously been shown that oxygenated perfluorocarbon emulsion (O2 Fluosol-DA 20%) decreases the amount of muscle necrosis and neutrophil sequestration when given during the reperfusion phase following skeletal muscle ischemia… (More)
