It is now just 20 years ago since Sodi-Pallares (1962) produced his provocative idea that myocardial ischemic damage could be minimized by replacing potassium loss from ischemic cells by a solution of glucose-insulin and potassium. Although his ideas are still being evaluated, it is interesting to see how even controversial concepts can lead to the evolution of new and important hypotheses.
