Abstract

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and the heart failure (HF) that often results are among the leading causes of death and disability in the world. As such, novel strategies are required to protect the heart against the detrimental effects of acute ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI), in order to reduce myocardial infarct (MI) size and prevent the onset of HF. The endogenous cardioprotective strategy of remote ischemic conditioning (RIC), in which cycles of brief ischemia and reperfusion are applied to a tissue or organ away from the heart, has been reported in experimental studies to reduce MI size in animal models of acute IRI. In the clinical setting, RIC can be induced by simply inflating and deflating a cuff placed on the upper arm or thigh to induce brief cycles of ischemia and reperfusion, a strategy which has been shown to reduce MI size in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). The results of the ongoing CONDI2/ERIC-PPCI trial are eagerly awaited, and will provide definitive answers with regards to the cardioprotective effect and clinical outcome benefits of RIC in STEMI.
