TROPONIN T AFTER CARDIAC SURGERY: WHAT IS NORMAL? A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE
Keywords:Troponin T, Cardiac Surgery
It is well established that cardiac biomarkers are universally raised post-cardiac surgery. This is due to various preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative factors. At present, no reliable tool or model considers intraoperative and postoperative factors to predict morbidity and mortality after cardiac surgery. Troponin T as a single or serial measurement to predict postoperative mortality and morbidity, is an attractive diagnostic tool due to the direct relationship to myocardial damage and the availability of testing. Currently, there is no consensus regarding the expected release of troponin T post-cardiac surgery. From a diagnostic and prognostic point of view, troponin T testing could be beneficial in recognising high-risk patients and any imminent compilations early. Therefore, this review aims to assess the expected release profile and prognostic value of troponin T after cardiac surgery.Keywords: troponin T., CABG, MPM, SAPS
