BACKGROUND During surgery, damage occurs to muscles in the area of the operation. The few studies that have examined creatine phosphokinase (CK) values after surgery have been in adults. The only study in children was after cardiac surgery. Understanding the normal enzyme pattern of change may help to differentiate malignant hyperthermia, anaesthesia-induced rhabdomyolysis and elevated CK values resulting from inherited muscle disease in cases in which these are suspected. The aim of this study… CONTINUE READING
