Prostaglandin-E1 (PGE1) is a potent vasodilator with anti-inflammatory and antiplatelet effects. However, the mechanism by which PGE1 contributes to the amelioration of cardiac injury remains unclear.

This study aims to clarify the influence of microRNA-410-3p (miRNA-410-3p) on hypoxia-induced injury in cardiomyocytes.
Hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) plays a critical role in the apoptotic process during cardiac ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. This study aimed to investigate whether post-treatment with dex...
Several studies have reported that CORM-3, a water-soluble carbon monoxide releasing molecule, elicits cardioprotection against myocardial infarction but the mechanism remains to be investigated. Nume...
Homeodomain interacting protein kinase-2 (HIPK2) has emerged as a crucial stress-responsive kinase that plays a critical role in regulating cell survival and apoptosis. However, whether HIPK2 particip...
Cardiomyocyte injury induced by acute myocardial infarction contributes to myocardial dysfunction. Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that pleckstrin homology domain leucine-rich repeat protein ph...
The application of tourniquet is indispensable for a bloodless surgical area in total knee arthroplasty surgery. The release of tourniquet produces reactive oxygen species which can cause ...
A former study (submitted) in 32 severely asphyxiated infants participating in a randomized double blind study, in which early postnatal allopurinol or a placebo (within 4 hours after birt...
Ischemia and reperfusion injury is unavoidable during a liver transplantation. Remote ischemic preconditioning, a safe and feasible method, has previously been shown to reduce ischemia and...
This study will evaluate the benefit of Intralipid® or placebo administered prior to reperfusion to limit ischemia reperfusion injury as measured by the geometric mean difference of the r...
The administration of high dose HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (Statins) to patients with acute ST-elevation MI (hypoxia/ischemia) who are treated with primary PCI (reoxygenation/ reperfusio...
Adverse functional, metabolic, or structural changes in ischemic tissues resulting from the restoration of blood flow to the tissue (REPERFUSION), including swelling; HEMORRHAGE; NECROSIS; and damage from FREE RADICALS. The most common instance is MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.
Generally, restoration of blood supply to heart tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. Reperfusion can be induced to treat ischemia. Methods include chemical dissolution of an occluding thrombus, administration of vasodilator drugs, angioplasty, catheterization, and artery bypass graft surgery. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.
Damage to the MYOCARDIUM resulting from MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION (restoration of blood flow to ischemic areas of the HEART.) Reperfusion takes place when there is spontaneous thrombolysis, THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY, collateral flow from other coronary vascular beds, or reversal of vasospasm.
Restoration of blood supply to tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. It is primarily a procedure for treating infarction or other ischemia, by enabling viable ischemic tissue to recover, thus limiting further necrosis. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing REPERFUSION INJURY.
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
