Research at the moment and development prospects


The research in the field of myocardial protection is translational by the type. In 2013, researchers of the Laboratory are carried out a multicenter randomized clinical trial of the effectiveness of ischemic postconditioning in patients with combined aortic valve and ascending aorta disease underwent cardiac surgery with extracorporeal circulation. Earlier experimental studies have provided the background for the present clinical studies on the cardioprotective effects of remote and pharmacological preconditioning.

Researchers of the Laboratory of Myocardial Metabolism in collaboration with the colleagues from the University of Oslo (Oslo, Norway) develop the protocol of experimental investigations of efficacy of preservation solution of the donor heart in a model of long-term hypothermic preservation of the rat heart under the agreement on scientific cooperation.
