Prognostic value of C-reactive protein and cardiac troponin I in primary percutaneous interventions for ST-elevation myocardial infarction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The rise in cardiac troponin I after ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated by primary percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) is predictive of infarct size and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). However, the comparative value of C-reactive protein (CRP) and troponin I for infarct size evaluation and the respective relationships… (More)
