RATIONALE Remote ischemic conditioning induced by repeated episodes of transient limb ischemia is a clinically applicable method for protecting the heart against injury at the time of reperfusion. OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of chronic, repeated, remote conditioning on infarct size and long-term remodeling after myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS Rats with ischemia/reperfusion injury received different protocols of remote limb conditioning. While a single early episode of remote… CONTINUE READING
