Abstract

Serum cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and CKMB (mass) were analysed in three groups of patients. The first group (n=32) were patients with acute coronary syndromes including myocardial infarction. The second group (n=35) were patients with hypertension. The third group (n=24) were patients who had succumbed to non cardiac diseases. In all 3 groups, cardiac troponin T was elevated when compared with controls (p<0.001). However, CKMB elevation was not significant in all groups. CKMB levels correlated well with troponin T levels only when CKMB was greater than 50 ng/ml (r=1.00). Small elevations of troponin T identifies minimal cardiac necrosis and patients can benefit from early invasive therapy.
