OBJECTIVES We examined the diagnostic performance of serum myoglobin, creatine-kinase-MB (CK-MB) and cardiac troponin-I (cTnI) for predicting the infarct-related artery (IRA) patency in patients(More)
RESULTS Angiography at 60 min showed a patent IRA (TIMI flow grade 2, 3) in 344 and occluded IRA (TIMI flow grade 0, 1) in 98 patients. The median serum T60 concentration, the ratio of the T60 and T0(More)
BACKGROUND Significant analytic variability exists between the multiple assays for cardiac troponin I (cTnI) approved for clinical use. Until adequate cTnI standardization is possible, an(More)
