Serum levels of cardiac troponin I and other marker proteins in patients with chronic renal failure

Abstract

Serum levels of biochemical markers for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) can be increased in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) or skeletal muscle injury, creating diagnostic confusion. We evaluated the clinical utility of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) as a marker of AMI, particularly in patients with CRF. Subjects consisted of 59 healthy volunteers and… (More)
