Post-Revascularization Syndrome (PRS), also described as, Ischemic Reperfusion Injury (IRI), is the main cause of failure in the revascularization of limbs. The etiology of Port-Revascularization Syndrome is not fully known, but it is accepted as a multifactorial chain with a time-dependent molecular and structural change of the affected tissues. Current clinical treatments of PRS are supportive only notwithstanding numerous intervention strategies have been proposed aiming at reducing IRI. The present perspective aimed to explain all the available treatments in studies of IRI, and their potential effects in the future medicine. Since there are almost no articles covering this topic, we believe that this perspective will clarify the necessity of more researchers and studies on IRI. Our main fidings leads to believe that there are many possible therapies for ischemic reperfusion injury, but most of them are still not used in practical scenarios because of it small samples studies, or in vitro techniques or the clinical trials are still not concluded. Although, signifiant work remains to be done.
