As the basis of this ratio, we also investigated the neuroprotective effect of different ratio on ischemia stroke and found that the ratio of 1: 3 was the most effective to reduce infract size in animal experiments and to improve the syndromes of patients who suffered from stroke in clinical practice.
Coronary collateral development has potential protective benefits such as limited infract size, less ventricular aneurysm formation, improved ventricular function, fewer future cardiovascular events, and improved survival in patients with occlusive coronary lesions (1-5).

The most common single anatomically infracted area was the parietal lobe in 16 (22%) patients followed by the frontal lobe in 4 (5%) patients.
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) procedures: For TEM, right atrium (RA) specimens were obtained from the area of maximum infracts of hearts of both control and treated rats were immediately preserved in 2.5 % gluteraldehyde, trimmed and diced into 1 cubic millimeter sizes, fixed in gluteraldehyde fixative in 0.1M sodium cacodylate buffer, pH 7.4, and placed in a thermal box cooled to 4 [degrees]C for 2 h.
The normal brain tissue was stained dark red, whereas the infracted area remained pale white.
First, the LAD was ligated at the proper level to generate the appropriate infracted wall of the LV.
This can lead to infarction and amplify the original damage from the ischemia over time, which is considerably detected by the mismatch between perfusion reduction and the area already infracted through perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) widely.
By using exploratory logistic regression analysis adjusted for patient background characteristics, it was shown that the risk for certain combinations of secondary endpoints was lower in the CA group than in the A group [all vascular events and silent brain infarcts: odds ratio (OR) = 0.37, p = 0.04; stroke and silent brain infarcts: OR = 0.34, p = 0.04; all vascular events, worsening of modified Rankin Scale scores and silent brain infracts: OR = 0.41, p = 0.03].
A bipolar needle pacing electrode was inserted in the infracted border zone to a depth of about 1mm.
