The postmortem determination of hyperglycaemic coma is quite difficult because of the lack of morphological findings and the difficult interpretation of biochemical parameters. Methylglyoxal (MG) is a reactive oxoaldehyde, which is mainly derived from glycolysis. An electrospray ionisation liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometric procedure for the… CONTINUE READING
