Abstract


Background

The role of elevated troponins to predict changes on ventricular

function in patients with high creatine kinase (CK) levels

has been well established; yet, little is known about the clinical

significance of high troponin levels with normal CK levels.

Objectives

To analyze the relation between Troponin T (TnT) levels and

global and regional left ventricular function in patients with acute

coronary syndromes (ACS) with normal CK and CK-MB levels
