The mechanisms underlying lethal reperfusion injury mainly include: (a) oncosis, (b) hypercontracture, (c) large generation of ROS, (d) over inflammatory response, and (e) opening of MPTP.[1],[10],[11]
In the treatment of ICVD, the reconstruction of blood flow or enhancement of the blood supply in the ischemic region is essential for the repair of ischemic brain tissue, but it also poses a problem of reperfusion injury. Other available therapeutic approaches for ICVD, such as thrombolytic tissue plasminogen activator, have a limited therapeutic window.

These changes suggest that the soleus muscle adapts well to reperfusion injury to maintain its function and mechanism of contraction (Table 1).
