Remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) is an attractive cardioprotective strategy. Although results from animal studies and phase II study on humans are convincing, it cannot have a role in clinical practice until benefits in clinical outcomes are proven in phase III study. Two phase III studies were recently published [Remote Ischemic Preconditioning for Heart Surgery (RIPHeart) and Effect of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning on Clinical Outcomes in Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (ERICCA)] and this article discusses their design, results and implications.
