remote ischemic preconditioning

remote ischemic preconditioning

,

RIPC

The protection of internal organs from ischemia by transiently blocking the flow of blood, usually to an arm or a leg, and then letting the limb reperfuse before permanent injury occurs. It is used as a pretreatment before several forms of vascular surgery.

Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a phenomenon in which brief ischemia of one organ or tissue provokes a protective effect, which can reduce the mass of infarction caused by vessel occlusion and reperfusion.
The searched words were divided into three categories: (1) condition (stroke); (2) intervention (remote ischemic preconditioning and RIPostC), remote ischemic preconditioning means intervention before issues of the attack, while RIPostC means intervention after the attack; (3) study type (RCTs).
Both ischemic preconditioning (IPC) and remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) had been identified to improve the outcome of organs suffering from IRI [7, 8].
