Ischemic preconditioning is a physiologic phenomenon that occurs in the cardiac muscle in which brief episodes of ischemia protect the heart when exposed to a sustained ischemia. Clinical counterparts include potential benefits of preinfarction angina and less ischemia after a second, compared to a first, coronary angioplasty balloon inflation. This article will discuss how preconditioning might be applied to the clinical setting during acute myocardial infarction, coronary interventions, and cardiac surgery.
