The investigators will test if RIPC will be associated with differential effects depending on background anesthesia. Specifically, the investigators hypothesized that RIPC during sevoflurane anesthesia attenuates myocardial injury in patients undergoing congenital cardiac defects repair surgery and that effects may be different during propofol anesthesia.

This study involves research using human subjects (cardiac surgical patients) to evaluate the effect of remote ischemic preconditioning cardioprotective outcomes. Remote ischemic precondit...
This study aims to evaluate the attenuation of ischemic-reperfusion injury in the liver after sevoflurane preconditioning. In the presence of sevoflurane, an attenuation of liver injury is...
In vitro studies and in vivo animal experiments have shown that halogenated volatile anesthetics have a protective effect on the ischemic myocardium. In clinical settings however, anesthet...
This study will compare the effects of sevoflurane, desflurane and total intravenous anaesthesia on pulmonary function tests in patients undergoing endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal sur...
Perioperative myocardial injury is a serious complication of cardiac surgery. This complication increases both mortality and morbidity of cardiac surgery. Remote ischemic preconditioning (...
The effects of sevoflurane on microglia/macrophages, promoting or suppressing their activation, remains controversy. We aimed to determine whether sevoflurane preconditioning can protect brain via cha...
Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) and remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) protect myocardial tissue against subsequent ischemia and reperfusion injury (IRI) and have a high potential to improve patien...
Anesthetic preconditioning is a cellular protective approach whereby exposure to a volatile anesthetic renders cardio injury. Sevoflurane preconditioning has been shown to exhibit cardio protective ef...
Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) seems to be a promising cardioprotective strategy with contradictive clinical data suggesting the anesthetic regimen influencing the favorable impact of RIPC. Th...
The most effective strategy for reducing acute myocardial ischemic injury is timely and effective reperfusion. However, myocardial reperfusion can induce further cardiomyocyte death (reperfusion injur...
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.
A technique in which tissue is rendered resistant to the deleterious effects of prolonged ischemia and reperfusion by prior exposure to brief, repeated periods of vascular occlusion. (Am J Physiol 1995 May;268(5 Pt 2):H2063-7, Abstract)
Consultation via remote telecommunications, generally for the purpose of diagnosis or treatment of a patient at a site remote from the patient or primary physician.
Exposure of myocardial tissue to brief, repeated periods of vascular occlusion in order to render the myocardium resistant to the deleterious effects of ISCHEMIA or REPERFUSION. The period of pre-exposure and the number of times the tissue is exposed to ischemia and reperfusion vary, the average being 3 to 5 minutes.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
