Aims: The potential of remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) to ameliorate myocardial ischaemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) remains controversial. We aimed to analyse the pre-clinical evidence base to ascertain the overall effect and variability of RIC in animal in vivo models of myocardial IRI. Furthermore, we aimed to investigate the impact of different study protocols on the protective utility of RIC in animal models and identify gaps in our understanding of this promising therapeutic strategy...

AIMS: Although the nature of the humoral factor which mediates cardioprotection established by remote ischaemic conditioning (RIc) remains unknown, parasympathetic (vagal) mechanisms appear to play a critical role. As the production and release of many gut hormones is modulated by the vagus nerve, here we tested the hypothesis that RIc cardioprotection is mediated by the actions of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). METHODS AND RESULTS: A rat model of myocardial infarction (coronary artery occlusion followed by reperfusion) was used...

Signalling pathways underlying the phenomenon of remote ischaemic preconditioning (RPc) cardioprotection are not completely understood. The existing evidence agrees that intact sensory innervation of the remote tissue/organ is required for the release into the systemic circulation of preconditioning factor(s) capable of protecting a transplanted or isolated heart. However, the source and molecular identities of these factors remain unknown. Since the efficacy of RPc cardioprotection is critically dependent upon vagal activity and muscarinic mechanisms, we hypothesized that the humoral RPc factor is produced by the internal organ(s), which receive rich parasympathetic innervation...

Despite major advances in mechanical and pharmacological reperfusion strategies to improve acute myocardial infarction (MI) injury, substantial mortality, morbidity, and socioeconomic burden still exists. To further reduce infarct size and thus ameliorate clinical outcome, the focus has also shifted towards early detection of MI with high-sensitive troponin assays, imaging, cardioprotection against pathophysiological targets of myocardial reperfusion injury with mechanical (ischaemic post-conditioning, remote ischaemic pre-conditioning, therapeutic hypothermia, and hypoxemia) and newer pharmacological interventions (atrial natriuretic peptide, cyclosporine A, and exenatide)...

Introduction of reperfusion therapy by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has resulted in improved outcomes for patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Despite the obvious advantages of primary PCI, acute restoration of blood flow paradoxically also jeopardises the myocardium in the first minutes of reperfusion-a phenomenon known as reperfusion injury. Prevention of reperfusion injury may help to improve outcome following primary PCI. This review focuses on the clinical evidence of potential therapeutic cardioprotective methods as adjuvant to primary PCI...

For patients with ischaemic heart disease, remote ischaemic conditioning may offer an innovative, non-invasive and virtually cost-free therapy for protecting the myocardium against the detrimental effects of acute ischaemia-reperfusion injury, preserving cardiac function and improving clinical outcomes. The intriguing phenomenon of remote ischaemic conditioning was first discovered over 20 years ago, when it was shown that the heart could be rendered resistant to acute ischaemia-reperfusion injury by applying one or more cycles of brief ischaemia and reperfusion to an organ or tissue away from the heart - initially termed 'cardioprotection at a distance'...

Ischaemia of the extremity from the use of a tourniquet and the subsequent reperfusion contribute to the release of reactive oxygen species. This release may result in injury to remote organs. We performed a qualitative systematic review exploring the interventions used to prevent tourniquet-related oxidative damage in adults undergoing orthopaedic surgery, and the possible relationship between biochemical oxidative stress markers and postoperative clinical outcomes. Seventeen randomised controlled studies were included in the qualitative synthesis...

BACKGROUND: Remote ischaemic pre-conditioning attenuates myocardial injury. Because sulphonylurea drugs interfere with ischaemic and anaesthetic pre-conditioning, we assessed whether remote ischaemic pre-conditioning effects are altered in sulphonylurea-treated diabetics. METHODS: Using the database of our ongoing randomised, placebo-controlled study ( NCT01406678), we assessed the troponin I concentration area under curve (measurements: baseline, 1, 6, 12, 24, 48, and 72 h post-operatively) in sulphonylurea-treated diabetics (n = 27) and non-diabetics (n = 230) without and with remote ischaemic pre-conditioning (three 5-min periods of left upper arm ischaemia with 5-min reperfusion each) during isoflurane anaesthesia before two- to three-vessel coronary artery surgery...

BACKGROUND: Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN), an acute kidney injury resulting from the administration of intravascular iodinated contrast media, is an important cause of morbidity/mortality following coronary angiographic procedures in high-risk patients. Despite preventative measures intended to mitigate the risk of CIN, there remains a need for an effective intervention. Remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC), where non-injurious ischaemia is applied to an arm prior to the administration of contrast, has shown promise in attenuating CIN but its effectiveness in preserving long-term renal function is unknown, which will be studied as part of the effect of remote ischaemic conditioning against contrast-induced nephropathy (ERICCIN) trial...

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death and disability in Europe. For patients presenting with an acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), timely myocardial reperfusion using either thrombolytic therapy or primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) is the most effective therapy for limiting myocardial infarct (MI) size, preserving left-ventricular systolic function and reducing the onset of heart failure. Despite this, the morbidity and mortality of STEMI patients remain significant, and novel therapeutic interventions are required to improve clinical outcomes in this patient group...

Mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (ALDH-2) is involved in preconditioning pathways, but its role in remote ischaemic preconditioning (rIPC) is unknown. We investigated its role in animal and human models of rIPC. (i) In a rabbit model of myocardial infarction, rIPC alone reduced infarct size [69 ± 5.8 % (n = 11) to 40 ± 6.5 % (n = 12), P = 0.019]. However, rIPC protection was lost after pre-treatment with the ALDH-2 inhibitor cyanamide (62 ± 7.6 % controls, n = 10, versus 61 ± 6.9 % rIPC after cyanamide, n = 10, P > 0...

'Acute kidney injury' is modern terminology for a sudden decline in kidney function, and is defined by the RIFLE classification (RIFLE is an acronym for Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss and End-stage kidney disease). Acute kidney injury occurs as a result of the combination of reduced perfusion in the kidney, systemic inflammation, and the administration of nephrotoxic drugs. Patients with chronic renal damage, advanced age, diabetes mellitus or heart failure are at an increased risk of acute kidney injury. In the short term, acute kidney injury leads to a markedly increased risk of death; the long-term effect of acute kidney injury is a permanent loss of renal microcirculation which could result in chronic renal disease...

AIMS: Innate mechanisms of inter-organ protection underlie the phenomenon of remote ischaemic preconditioning (RPc) in which episode(s) of ischaemia and reperfusion in tissues remote from the heart reduce myocardial ischaemia/reperfusion injury. The uncertainty surrounding the mechanism(s) underlying RPc centres on whether humoral factor(s) produced during ischaemia/reperfusion of remote tissue and released into the systemic circulation mediate RPc, or whether a neural signal is required...

Myocardial ischaemia-reperfusion injury can be significantly reduced by an episode(s) of ischaemia-reperfusion applied prior to or during myocardial ischaemia (MI) to peripheral tissue located at a distance from the heart; this phenomenon is called remote ischaemic conditioning (RIc). Here, we compared the efficacy of RIc in protecting the heart when the RIc stimulus is applied prior to, during and at different time points after MI. A rat model of myocardial ischaemia-reperfusion injury involved 30 min of left coronary artery occlusion followed by 120 min of reperfusion...

Persistent myocardial ischaemia causes cell death if not rescued by early reperfusion. Millions of years in nature's laboratory have evolved protective responses that 'condition' the heart (and other tissues) to adapt to stressors, and these responses are applicable to the relatively new societal stress of myocardial ischaemia and reperfusion injury. Conditioning can be applied before (preconditioning), during (perconditioning), or after (postconditioning) the ischaemic stressor by imposing short periods of non-lethal ischaemia separated by brief periods of reperfusion...

BACKGROUND: Remote ischaemic pre-conditioning and cardiac ischaemic post-conditioning provide myocardial protection in cardiac surgery. However, these two endogenous strategies have not been directly compared in a clinical setting. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of remote ischaemic pre-conditioning and post-conditioning in providing myocardial protection to children undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass for surgical repair of ventricular septal defect. METHODS: We randomly assigned 60 paediatric patients scheduled for surgical correction of congenital ventricular septal defect to the post-conditioning group (n = 20), remote pre-conditioning group (n = 20), or control group (n = 20)...

AIMS: Remote ischaemic pre-conditioning (RIPC) reduces distant tissue ischaemia reperfusion injury. We tested the hypothesis that RIPC would protect the left ventricle (LV) from ischaemic dysfunction and stunning. METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty-two patients with single vessel coronary disease and normal LV function were prospectively recruited. Twenty patients had repeated conductance catheter assessment of LV function during serial coronary occlusions with/without RIPC and a further 22 patients underwent serial dobutamine stress echocardiography and tissue Doppler analysis with/without RIPC...

Ischaemic preconditioning is defined as an increased tolerance to ischaemia and reperfusion induced by a previous sublethal period of ischaemia. Since this is the most powerful mechanism for limiting infarct size, other than timely reperfusion, an overwhelming number of studies have addressed the way in which this form of protection occurs. During the short preconditioning period of ischaemia, several trigger substances are released (adenosine, bradykinin, norepinephrine, opioids). By activation of membrane-bound receptors, these substances activate a complex intracellular signalling cascade, which converges on mitochondrial end-effectors, including the ATP-sensitive potassium channel and the mitochondrial permeability transition pore...
