We appreciate the interest in our article [1]. The authors raised the issue that ischemic conditioning (IC) may have also affected our study results of reduced myocardial injury and improved clinical outcome in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing direct stenting (DS) and recommend to include the IC intervention in our Cox regression analyses for identification of independent predictors of improved prognosis.
