Angioplasty is a commonly performed procedure for treating blockage of the blood vessels in the heart. Although this procedure is usually successful, it is often accompanied by a small degree of damage to the heart (i.e., small heart attack).
The purpose of this study is to find out if inflating a blood pressure cuff on the arm or the leg at the time of angioplasty for several minutes has a beneficial effect.
Patients will be assigned to one of three treatment groups: inflating blood pressure cuff on the arm, inflating blood pressure cuff on the leg and a control group.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Caregiver, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Prevention

The aim of this study is to evaluate the phenomenon of remote ischemic postconditioning in humans. The minor myocardial damage associated with percutaneous revascularization procedures may...
This study evaluates the addition of remote ischemic preconditioning and postconditioning to standard myocardial protection protocol in patients submitted to off - pump coronary artery byp...
This trial is a 2 x 2 factorial design, double-blinded, randomized controlled trial to evaluate efficacy and safety of remote ischemic preconditioning and postconditioning in patient under...
During coronary artery bypass graft surgery, injury occurs to the heart muscle. Some of this injury is due to the deprivation of oxygen and nutrients to the heart (a process called ischemi...
Influence of bilateral arm ischemic postconditioning （BAIPC）on the injury and protective blood markers and the clinical prognosis and outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke
Remote limb ischemic postconditioning (RIPostC) protects the brain from damage induced by transient focal ischemia/reperfusion. However, the underlying mechanism remains unclear.
The association between minimally elevated coronary artery calcification (CAC) and cerebrovascular disease is not well known. We assessed whether individuals with minimal CAC (Agatston scores of 1-10)...
Neurological complications after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) reduce quality of life, increase mortality, and inflate resource utilization. The risk of postoperative neurological complicatio...
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the ability of ischemic postconditioning, atorvastatin and both associated to prevent or minimize reperfusion injury in the lung of rats subjected to ische...
To investigate the prevalence and outcomes of asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with the first episode of ischemic stroke.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
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 complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
