Preconditioning shields against vascular events in surgery (saves), a multicentre feasibility trial of preconditioning against adverse events in major vascular surgery: study protocol for a randomised control trial
(Springer Nature, 2015-04-23)
Background: Patients undergoing vascular surgery procedures constitute a 'high-risk' group. Fatal and disabling perioperative complications are common. Complications arise via multiple aetiological pathways. This mechanistic ...
