Persistent neutrophil (PMN) activation 24 hr after ischemia and reperfusion.


Neutrophils have been implicated as mediators of the reperfusion injury which occurs in skeletal muscle after ischemia. The purpose of this study is to determine if PMN chemotaxis occur 24 hr after an ischemic injury followed by reperfusion. Rabbit hindlimbs were made ischemic by clamping the right iliac and femoral arteries for 2 or 3 hr after ligating all… (More)
