Ischaemic preconditioning of skeletal muscle. 1. Protection against the structural changes induced by ischaemia/reperfusion injury.

Abstract:

Ischaemic preconditioning is a process by which exposure of a tissue to a short period of non-damaging ischaemic stress leads to resistance to the deleterious effects of a subsequent prolonged ischaemic stress. It has been extensively described in the heart, but few studies have examined the possibility that it can occur in skeletal muscle. We have used a rat model of ischaemia of one limb to examine this possibility. Exposure of the hind limb to a period of ischaemia of five minutes and repe...
