Evaluation of plasma homocysteine levels as a prognostic factor for the occurrence of perioperative myocardial infarction in coronary artery bypass grafting: A pilot study

Abstract:

Disturbances in homocysteine metabolism may lead to hyperhomocysteinemia. This condition has been associated with vascular atheromatosis leading to coronary artery disease (CAD) as well as myocardial infarction. One hundred patients with CAD who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) were enrolled. The study aimed to evaluate cardiac enzymes and electrocardiogram of each patient postoperatively so as to diagnose perioperative myocardial infarction (PMI). An initial decrease of homoc...
