Liver tissue ATP levels and lipid peroxidation.
(A) RIC resulted in better preserved tissue ATP levels throughout the observation period. Significantly higher tissue ATP levels have been found in the RIC 1 group vs. Control after 3 h reperfusion. (mean±SD, **p<0.01 RIC 1 vs. Control, one-way ANOVA, n = 6/group/time point). (B) Extent of oxidative damage and lipid peroxidation (MDA) did not show significant between group differences. Abbreviations used: RIC-remote ischemic conditioning; ATP-adenosine triphosphate; MDA-malondialdehyde.
