Peri-operative troponin I concentration as a marker of long-term postoperative adverse cardiac outcomes--a study in high-risk surgical patients.
We have previously demonstrated that the peri-operative measurement of increased serum concentrations of the cardiac markers troponins I and T and creatine kinase-MB can be predictors of major cardiovascular outcomes (including cardiac death) at 3 months after surgery. In the present study, we have followed the postoperative course of 157 patients undergoing major vascular surgery or major joint arthroplasty to 1 year using a patient questionnaire, general practitioner follow-up and case-note...Expand abstract
