Remote hindlimb preconditioning and hepatoprotection: NO-table strides against liver ischaemia/reperfusion injury

Teoh, Narcissus

Description

Hepatic IR (ischaemia/reperfusion) injury is an important clinical problem complicating liver surgery and transplantation. IPC (ischaemic preconditioning) is a strategy whereby brief episodes of IR in an organ can induce an adaptive response to protect against subsequent prolonged IR injury. However, trauma to vessels supplying the target organ is unavoidable using the technique of direct IPC. One amenable strategy would be to apply the protective preconditioning stimulus to an organ distant or...[Show more]
