BACKGROUND: Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) by transient limb ischemia reduces myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of study we report here was to assess the effect of RIPC on endothelial function in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who underwent primary PCI.
METHODS: Forty eight patients withAMI were enrolled. All participants were randomly divided into two groups. In Group I (n = 23), RIPC was performed prior to primary PCI (intermittent arm ischemia-reperfusion through four cycles of 5-min inflation and 5-min deflation of a blood-pressure cuff to 200 mm Hg). In Group II (n = 25), standard PCI without preconditioning was performed. We assessed endothelial function using the flow-mediated dilation (FMD) test on baseline, then within 1-3 hours after PCI, and again on days 2 and 7 after PCI.
RESULTS: The brachial artery FMD results were significantly higher on the first day after primary PCI in the preconditioning group (Group I) than in the control group (Group II) (12.1% vs. 0.0%, p=0.03, and 11.1% vs. 6.3%, p=0.016, respectively), and this difference remained on the seventh day (12.3% vs. 7.4%, p=0.0005, respectively).
CONCLUSION: We demonstrated for the first time that remote ischemic preconditioning prior to primary PCI significantly improves endothelial function in patients with AMI and this effect remains constantat least for a week. We suppose that the improvement of endothelial function may be one of the possible explanations of the effect of RIPC.
