BACKGROUND Serum cardiac troponin T (cTnT) levels are elevated in a high percentage of hemodialysis (HD) patients and as a result, they have been considered low specificity for ischemic heart disease (IHD). Recently, several authors have indicated the value of cTnT as a marker of IHD and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), as well as a mortality predictor. We try to establish the value of cTnT as an IHD marker and a mortality predictor in our patients on HD. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Fifty-eight… CONTINUE READING
