Introduction Clinical evidence supports the existence of a trauma-induced secondary cardiac injury. Experimental research suggests inflammation as a possible mechanism. The study aimed to determine if there was an early association between inflammation and secondary cardiac injury in trauma patients. Methods A cohort study of critically injured patients between January 2008 and January 2010 was undertaken. Levels of the cardiac biomarkers troponin I and heart-specific fatty acid–binding protein… Expand
