To determine the extent to which PTCA elicits subtle myocardial ischemic injury, 28 patients were studied prospectively. The presence of myocardial injury was assessed by analysis of frequent (q4 hours) serial samples of MB CK, a sensitive and specific marker of myocardial injury. Immediately prior to angioplasty, baseline 12-lead ECGs and blood samples for evaluation of total CK and MB CK were obtained. Additional ECGs were obtained immediately after the procedure and on the following morning… CONTINUE READING
