cardiac enzymes

Lab medicine A group of 3 enzymes–AST, total CK, and LD, once used to diagnose and monitor suspected MI. See β enolase, Cardiac markers, CK-MB, Flipped pattern, Troponin.

All patients who presented with or without typical cardiac chest pain, who were found to have ECG changes consistent with ST elevation MI, and who had elevated cardiac enzymes (CK-MB: the only available cardiac biomarker in the centre at that time).
In case the patient has symptoms, it is better to do Thallium Test, Cardiac Enzymes and MRI.
His cardiac enzymes were elevated and he had severe lactic acidosis.
Increase in cardiac enzymes was due to unnecessary formation of free radicals which activate membrane permeability variations, causing the failure of functions and integrity of myocardial membranes (Barman et al.
Mean and standard deviations were calculated for quantitative variables such as age, ejection fraction, serum creatinine and cardiac enzymes.

Type 1 variant includes patients with normal coronary arteries without predisposing factors for coronary artery disease, in whom the acute release of inflammatory mediators can induce either coronary artery spasm without an increase in cardiac enzymes and troponins or coronary artery spasm progressing to acute myocardial infarction with raised cardiac enzymes and troponins.
