Ischemia-modified albumin increases after skeletal muscle ischemia during arthroscopic knee surgery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Ischemia can alter the ability of albumin to bind free metal atoms. Based on these biochemical changes, methods to quantify ischemia modified albumin (IMA) were developed to assist in the evaluation of patients with symptoms of cardiac ischemia. Since ischemia can occur in any vascular bed, the specificity of IMA for cardiac muscle ischemia is… (More)
