Effects of remote ischemic preconditioning and myocardial ischemia on microRNA-1 expression in the rat heart in vivo.
Brandenburger T, Grievink H, Heinen N, Barthel F, Huhn R, Stachuletz F, Kohns M, Pannen B, Bauer I.

Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) is an easily applicable method for protecting the heart against a subsequent ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury. However, the exact molecular mechanisms underlying RIPC are unknown…

Cardiovascular stability and unchanged muscle sympathetic activity during xenon anaesthesia: role of norepinephrine uptake inhibition.
Neukirchen M, Hipp J, Schaefer MS, Brandenburger T, Bauer I, Winterhalter M, Kienbaum P, Werdehausen R.

Intraoperative hypotension is associated with increased risk of perioperative complications. The N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor (NMDA-R) antagonist xenon (Xe) induces general anaesthesia without impairment of cardiac output and vascular resistance. Mechanisms involved in cardiovascular stability have not been identified.
