BACKGROUND The treatment of intracranial aneurysms may be associated with cerebral ischemia. We hypothesize that pre-interventional remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) reduces ischemic cerebral tissue damage in patients undergoing elective intracranial aneurysm treatment. METHODS/DESIGN This study is a single-center, prospective, randomized, double… CONTINUE READING
