OBJECTIVE To determine changes in cardiac troponin I concentration (cTnI) associated with cardiovascular catheterization in dogs. ANIMALS, MATERIALS AND METHODS cTnI was measured after transarterial coil embolization of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), balloon valvuloplasty (BV), and pacemaker implantation (PACE). Dogs undergoing ovariohysterectomy (OHE) were used as a control, with 15 animals in each group. Blood for the cTnI assay was collected at baseline (T0), at 5h (T5), 24h (T24) and 10… CONTINUE READING
