In this randomized trial involving 100 pts requiring PCI for STEMI and occluded LAD, half received lower extremity preconditioning for 3 cycles of 5min/5min ischemia/reperfusion. Preconditioning reduced enzymatic infarct size, reduced myocardial edema, and provided greater improvement in ST segment resolution.
