• Necrostatin-1 protects against ischemia/reperfusion injury by inhibiting receptor-interacting protein 1 in a rat flap model

    21 days ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    : The failure of reconstructive surgeries remains a challenge for plastic surgeons. Ischemia reperfusion injury is considered to be one of the major problems in flap surgery. Necroptosis is a recently discovered and caspase-3 independent programmed necrosis. Necrostatin-1 is a specific inhibitor of necroptosis. Reports indicate that Nec-1 provides protection in ischemic models, such as brain, kidney and heart. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of Nec-1 on the I/R process in rat abdominal skin flaps.
