Abstract

This review highlights the importance of neural mechanisms capable of protecting the heart against lethal ischemia/reperfusion injury. Increased parasympathetic (vagal) activity limits myocardial infarction, and recent data suggest that activation of autonomic reflex pathways contributes to powerful innate mechanisms of cardioprotection underlying the remote ischemic conditioning phenomena.
