Predictive value of cardiac troponin-I compared to creatine kinase-myocardial band for the assessment of infarct size as measured by cardiac magnetic resonance.
BACKGROUND: The estimation of infarct size by biochemical myocardial necrosis markers is used in current clinical practice, rather than the more expensive and not always available imaging techniques. However, for this purpose, the peak value of serum biomarkers can overestimate the necrotic area, especially after reperfusion. OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether late release cardiac troponin I (cTnI) values could predict more precisely infarct volume measured by delayed-enhancement cardiac mag...Expand abstract
