  • Ischemia and reperfusion is a pathological condition characterized by an initial restriction of blood supply to an organ followed by the subsequent restoration of perfusion and concomitant reoxygenation. Restoration of blood flow and reoxygenation is frequently associated with an exacerbation of tissue injury and a profound inflammatory response (called ‘reperfusion injury’).
