The limitations of autopsy in the diagnosis of death due to ischemic heart disease are well known. In the living, a simple reliable biochemical assay for cardiac troponins is used in the diagnosis of acute myocardial ischemia. Several studies have investigated the use of biochemical assays for cardiac troponins in postmortem subjects as a means to distinguish between a cardiac and anoncardiac cause of death. All of these studies, however, rely upon assigning subjects to "cardiac" or "noncardiac… CONTINUE READING
