Abstract

Preconditioning the myocardium using short episodes of sublethal ischaemia will delay the onset of necrosis during a subsequent lethal ischaemic insult. This powerful protective adaptation of the myocyte has also been observed in other cell types. The potential for clinical application to benefit patients with a variety of pathological conditions has led to an expansion in our knowledge concerning the pathophysiology of ischemia-reperfusion injury and the regulatory mechanisms underlying cellular metabolism. We feel it is timely to assess the current position in this field and provide a critical appraisal to facilitate future research. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
