The only way to identify patients who have had a postoperative troponin leak secondary to myocardial ischaemia after non-cardiac surgery (MINS) is to conduct routine postoperative troponin surveillance--especially as 65% of patients suffering a myocardial infarction postoperatively will be asymptomatic and will also not be recognised through serial ECG monitoring.

Treatment of myocardial ischaemia for example, is accompanied by a brief list of possible therapies but no specific guidelines on drug, dose or choice of therapy.
They analysed data on 84,010 hospital admissions for heart attack recorded in the Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP) during 2003-2006, and daily temperatures from the British Atmospheric Data Centre, focusing on 15 geographical areas in England and Wales.
We assessed the efficacy of this method in relieving angina and improving objective measures of myocardial ischaemia. METHODS: All patients (67) who referred for EECP to Shahid Chamran Hospital, Isfahan, Iran from 2002 to 2005 were included.
[1] One-third of deaths in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery are cardiovascular in origin.121 Myocardial ischaemia with subsequent injury is strongly associated with perioperative mortality.
The mechanisms of myocardial ischaemia in HCM with CAF include increased oxygen demand by the hypertrophied ventricular myocardium, impaired coronary circulation, demand supply mismatch and increased diastolic filling pressures.
Coronary artery occlusion leads to myocardial ischaemia and late myocardial necrosis sets in.
[6] Whether statin and aspirin therapy may also decrease mortality in patients who sustain a postoperative troponin leak secondary to myocardial ischaemia (which is now known as myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery (MINS)), without fulfilling the Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction, [7,8] is currently unknown.
