BACKGROUND It is still difficult to evaluate myocardial damage in the acute phase of reperfusion in cardiac operations. We investigated the clinical significance of human heart fatty acid-binding protein (HH-FABP) for detecting myocardial damage after cardiac operations earlier than creatine kinase MB isoform or troponin-T. METHODS Blood samples from 20 patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting were collected serially after reperfusion to measure serum levels of creatine kinase… CONTINUE READING
