CONTEXT In India, the correlation of severity of minor myocardial damage with dyslipidemia has rarely been studied in patients of unstable angina (UA). Dyslipidemia is proven to be a major risk factor for developing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) but still there is doubt about the type of lipoproteins involved in causing minor myocardial damage occurring in(More)
Background: Although it is well known that dyslipidemia is the major risk factor for developing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) but its role in causing minor myocardial damage in unstable angina (UA) patients is rarely studied in south India, where obesity and dyslipidemia has been more common due to genetic and life style factors. Objective: The aim of our(More)
It is now well known that, as compared to all other cardiac markers the cardiac Troponin-I and CK-MB are found to be more reliable for the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of our study was to assess the comparative role of CK-MB and Troponin-I in the diagnosis of non-ST elevation MI (NSTEMI) where there is minimal cardiac damage. Design: The(More)
