The aim of this experimental study was to compare and investigate the effects of lower extremity RIPC and renal DIPC on IR injury of the kidneys, and to evaluate the effects of RIPC and DIPC histopathologically in the rat renal IR injury model.
An investigator who was independent of the study randomized the patients to RIPC or control groups (allocation ratio 1:1) by using a computer-generated list of randomized numbers through permuted blocking.
In one randomized, single-blind, controlled trial, RIPC protected the kidneys in 120 adult patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery [31].
The inclusion criteria were as follows: (1) RCTs published in English, (2) studies that involved patients undergoing elective PCI, (3) studies that reported the incidence of perioperative myocardial infarction or troponin levels after PCI or renal injury as endpoints, and (4) RIPC intervention regardless of the duration or number of cycles.
The RIPC serves as a monthly rule of law forum chaired by various missions.
"The Committee meeting also included three presentations on the Iraq Rule of Law Strategy of RIPC partners and the activities of the US-supported National Center for State Courts and USAID-funded Iraq Access to Justice Program," the statement added.

(10) administered dexmedetomidine both alone and with remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) and found it reduced histomorphological renal IR injury at significant levels.
