Myocardial preconditioning. Endogenous protection against infarction.

T. R. Snow, Peter Mckeown

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Even with heroic procedures, it is not yet possible to prevent cell death during a myocardial infarction; however, preconditioning has revealed an endogenous process capable of providing significant protection to the heart from such a fatal result. Mechanisms by which preconditioning operates have not yet been unraveled but its resolution has clear clinical significance.
