Reperfusion injury to skeletal muscle affects primarily type II muscle fibers.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION The injury caused by reperfusion of ischemic skeletal muscle is mediated by the membrane attack complex of complement (C) . This C activation results from local classical pathway activation after deposition of IgM in injured muscle, an event analogous to C deposition in the mucosa of the gut during reperfusion . Our past analysis has indicated… (More)
