Analysis of troponin I levels after spontaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator shocks.

INTRODUCTION Serum cardiac troponin I (cTnI) is a sensitive and specific marker for myocardial injury. Myocardial ischemia and/or injury can be a trigger for ventricular arrhythmias. The aim of this study was to assess the frequency and significance of elevated serum cTnI levels after spontaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) shocks… CONTINUE READING
