BACKGROUND We designed this study to determine the value of serum levels of several cardiac markers in patients who underwent radiofrequency ablation and to establish the utility of cardiac troponin I (cTnI). After radiofrequency ablation there is always a small localized endomyocardial necrosis. The volume of the necrosis may be estimated by the rise of several biochemical marker levels, classically creatinine kinase (CK) and CK-MB. cTnI is a newly available biochemical marker with a high… CONTINUE READING
