In news:

Magnesium sulphate is a neuroprotective agent that might improve outcome after aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage by reducing the occurrence or improving the outcome of delayed cerebral ischaemia.
Insufficient vascular perfusion is a common denominator in myocardial ischaemia, embolic stroke, claudication, and chronic non-healing ulcers.
Recombinant fibroblast growth factor-2 (rFGF-2) improves perfusion in models of myocardial and hindlimb ischaemia.

During ischaemia, cardiac myocytes swell rapidly.
Ischaemia also alters the potency of antiarrhythmic drugs, with the effectiveness of some antiarrhythmics being diminished.
