Troponin elevation after percutaneous coronary intervention directly represents the extent of irreversible myocardial injury: insights from cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Although troponin elevation after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is common, uncertainties remain about the mechanisms of its release and its relationship to the volume of myocardial tissue loss. Delayed-enhancement MRI of the heart has been shown to reliably quantify areas of irreversible myocardial injury. To investigate the quantitative relationship between irreversible injury and cardiac troponin release, we studied the incidence and extent of new irreversible injury...
