Myocardial reperfusion can be predicted by myoglobin/creatine kinase ratio of a single blood sample obtained at the time of admission.

Abstract

To evaluate noninvasive markers for determining the reperfusion status without coronary angiography (CAG) or serial blood sampling in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), two markers were examined: (1) serum myoglobin (Mb) level and (2) serum myoglobin/creatine kinase ratio (Mb/CK). Before emergency CAG a blood sample was drawn from 72 AMI… (More)
