The incidence of cardiac troponin T (Tn-T) and creatine kinase (CK) isoenzyme MB mass release was studied in 23 patients with stable angina pectoris undergoing visually successful percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Serial blood samples were drawn for measurement of serum Tn-T, CK-MB mass, total CK activity, CK-MB activity, and lactate dehydrogenase isoenzyme (LD-1). ST segment monitoring was carried out during PTCA and for the following 24 hours. None of the patients showed… CONTINUE READING
