    P>We present a less traumatic surgical technique for harvesting the radial artery as a coronary artery bypass graft that does not require any special equipment or skills. We prospectively randomized 40 patients undergoing ...
  • Remote preconditioning in normal and hypertrophic rat hearts 

    Voucharas, C.; Lazou, A.; Triposkiadis, F.; Tsilimingas, N. (2011)
    Background: The aim of our study was to investigate whether remote preconditioning (RPC) improves myocardial function after ischemia/reperfusion injury in both normal and hypertrophic isolated rat hearts. This is the first ...
