BACKGROUND Cardiac troponin I and T (cTnI and cTnT) are sensitive and specific markers of myocardial damage. We evaluated them for the selection of heart donors and as predictors of early graft failure after heart transplantation. METHODS cTnI, cTnT, myoglobin, and creatine kinase (CK) levels and its isoenzyme MB (CKMB) activity and mass were measured in… CONTINUE READING
