Interruption of blood flow can cause ischemic reperfusion injury, which sometimes has a fatal outcome. Recognition of the phenomenon known as reperfusion injury has led to initial interventional approaches to lessen the degree of damage. A number of efficient pharmacologic agents and surgical techniques (e.g., local ischemic preconditioning and postconditioning) are available. A novel, alternative approach to target organ protection is remote ischemic conditioning triggered by brief repetitive ischemia and reperfusion periods in distant organs. Among the different surgical techniques is so-called remote ischemic perconditioning, a method that applies short periods of ischemic reperfusion to a distant organ delivered during target organ ischemia. Although ischemic reperfusion injury is reduced by this technique, the explanation for this phenomenon is still unclear, and approximately only a dozen reports on the topic have appeared in the literature. In our study, therefore, we investigated the connective mechanisms, signal transduction, and effector mechanisms behind remote perconditioning, with a review on molecular background and favorable effects. In addition, we summarize the various treatment protocols and models to promote future experimental and clinical research.
