Minimizing injuries from acute myocardial infarction

Reperfusion therapy is currently the mainstay treatment of acute myocardial infarction, as it salvages myocardial cells from ischemic cell death. However, abrupt restoration of coronary blood flow induces another type of cell death called “lethal reperfusion injury,”

A new avenue in an effort to minimize injuries from acute myocardial infarction

Reperfusion therapy is currently the mainstay of acute myocardial infarction treatment; it salvages myocardial cells from ischemic cell death. However, abrupt restoration of coronary blood flow induces another type of cell death, called “lethal reperfusion injury”, which
