A Multicenter Trial of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning for Heart Surgery
Pts undergoing cardiac surgery requiring CPB were randomized to remote ischemic preconditioning of the upper extremity or sham intervention. The end point was combined death, MI, stroke, and acute renal failure during hospitalization, and secondary endpoints were the occurrence of any such event within 90 days. Outcomes were similar between the groups, with no treatment effects evident on multiple sub-analyses.
