Injury Reperfusion Injury is the damage caused by the sudden return of oxygenated blood to a tissue or organ that has been without oxygen for a period of time. It is often seen in organs that have suffered ischemia due to blocked blood vessels, such as in the case of heart attack or stroke. It can also be caused by some types of surgery. Symptoms of reperfusion injury can include cell death, swelling, inflammation, and decreased organ function. It has been found to lead to long-term damage and organ failure, so proper diagnosis and treatment is important. Treatments for reperfusion injury include the use of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory drugs, and other therapies that can help to reduce damage and improve organ function.
