Mild myocardial injuries after coronary angioplasty are associated with adverse late outcomes. The incidence and prognostic value of this phenomenon when using cardiac troponin I (cTnI) after stent implantation is unknown. We studied cTnI and creatine kinase (CK) release in 109 patients after stenting. Clinical success was achieved in 103 patients (94%). In-hospital major adverse coronary events were: death in 1 patient, Q-wave myocardial infarction in 1 patient, and non-Q-wave myocardial… CONTINUE READING
