Utility of cardiac biomarkers for the diagnosis of type V myocardial infarction after coronary artery bypass grafting: Insights from serial cardiac MRI

Abstract:

Objectives: To examine, using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), the utility of cardiac biomarkers for the determination of myocyte necrosis and function after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), and to test the recently updated guidelines for the diagnosis of postoperative myocardial infarction (type V MI). Methods and results: Forty patients included in a single-centre randomised trial of two surgical techniques for performing CABG underwent serial assessment with CMR biochemical markers...
