Background: Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) is described as brief ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) cycles to induce tolerance to subsequent in response to longer I/R insults. Various IPC protocols can be performed in four combinations as follows: at early or late phases and on local or distant organs. Although many experimental studies have been performed on IPC, no consensus has been established on which IPC protocol is most effective. The aims of the present study were as follows: (1) to compare the variables of preconditioning in different combinations (in early versus late phases; local versus remote organ implementations) and (2) to determine the most therapeutic IPC protocol(s).
