IPost reduced the IR-induced infarct size of LV. (A) Representative mid-myocardial crosssections of TTC-stained hearts for IR and IPost. Dark blue area, nonischemic zone; remaining area, AAR; white area, infracted tissue; red area, viable myocardium. (B) AAR/LV was similar between IR and IPost groups. IPost significantly attenuated myocardial INF/LV and INF/AAR compared with IR (n = 10, *P < 0.05, compared with IR group).
