Reperfusion through thrombolysis or percutananeous coronary angioplasty is standard treatment in impending acute myocardial infarction. Although restoration of blood flow to the jeopardised myocardial area is a perquisite for myocardial salvage, reperfusion itself may lead to accelerated and additional myocardial injury beyond that generated by ischemia alone. This is referred to as the "reperfusion injury". Since the reperfusion injury is initiated by the treatment of myocardial infarction, it… CONTINUE READING
