Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a well-known pathological condition that is characterized by high morbidity and mortality. The main pathological manifestation of CAD is myocardial injury due to ischemia–reperfusion (I–R). Currently, no efficacious treatment of protecting the heart against myocardial I–R exists. Hence, it is necessary to discover or develop novel strategies to prevent myocardial-reperfusion injury to improve clinical outcomes in patients with CAD. A large body of experimental evidence supports cardioprotective properties of curcumin and the ability of this phytochemical to modify some cardiovascular risk factors. However, the detailed effects of curcumin in myocardial I–R injury are still unclear and there is a lack of evidence concerning which curcumin regimen may be ideal for myocardial I–R injury. This paper presents a brief review of the pathophysiology of myocardial I–R injury and the mechanisms of action of curcumin in reducing myocardial I–R injury. © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
