OBJECTIVES The purpose of the present study was to assess whether brief, repeated coronary artery occlusions during balloon angioplasty induce a myocardial ischemic protective effect. BACKGROUND In animals, brief coronary artery occlusions preceding a more prolonged occlusion result in reduced infarct size. Whether myocardial protection against ischemia could also occur in humans during angioplasty remains controversial. METHODS Thirteen patients with a proximal left anterior descending… CONTINUE READING
