Enzyme Levels After Heart Attack
Normal,then elevated: Cardiac markers including ckmb and troponins measure damage to the heart muscle which occurs in a heart attack - the damaged/dying muscle will leak these into the serum which can be measured as blood tests. They start off "negative" - in the reference range - and then 4-6 hrs after the start of the heart attack they begin to rise - will eventually peak and over several days return to normal. ...Read more
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more
Is lipoprotein associated phospholipase a2 blood test better predictor of heart disease, heart attacks and stokes than myeloperoxidase (mpo) in men?
No, Different Issues: Mpo tends to reflect more active/prone to rupture vulnerable plaque activity, whereas lpla2 a protein on LDL particles which correlates with ?ed atherogenicity. Keep in mind artery ds typically begins age 7, ; earlier. Measured ldl, large hdl, hba1c ; BP are bigger issues. Many other biomarkers, like the ones you mentioned, also involved ; less important. Illusions of high tech often marketed. ...Read more
Few things: Troponin is a marker of several heart disorder including heart attack. Other cardiac conditions such as inflammation of the heart muscle, inflammation of the sac around the heart (pericardoum) also can cause troponin release in the blood. Troponin is increased in cardiac contusion, defibrillation of the heart and some cardiac procedures. It is positive up to 10-14 days after the injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is Heart attack is about clogged arteries? MIBI test normal, No Cholesterol, Blood pressure normal. Can it be concluded no heart attack?
Heart attack: Heart attack is from complete occlusion of one of the arteries. Unless opened right away - can lead to permanent damage resulting in a scar of the myocardium. Normal MIBI, low chol and BP means you are a low risk for developing coronay plaque which usually is the reason for heart attack. Plaques can break leading to occlusion in the arteries that result in heart attack. ...Read more
I hve chest pains which last seconds, is it cardiac related heart problem or coronary artery blockage.? My ecg, blood work, normal cholesterol levels
Does high total bilirubin blood levels about 4.5 increase the risk for heart attack/ stroke or death or something?
Yes, while it's : Great that you don't have the probs u mention, there is more to heart dz than just that. Healthy eating & wt., regular exercise are important even if your bp, choles, etc are normal. More advance testing for other risk factors beyond the standard lipid panel & fasting sugar level is available in some places, & we're still learning about other risk factors. Good u r being prevention-minded! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
D dimer 1600. Incr sed/crp. Elevated myoglobin (119) norm tropinin. Ck norm 72 hr after chest pain.Echo done.. Does the echo r/o heart attack?
Suggest: Echocardiogram can suggest myocardial damage if the heart attack is severe. Ecg, cardiac enzymes(such as tropinins) and symptoms are the points that rules in or out a heart attack. Elevated d-dimer suggests blood clots though very non specific including pulmonary embolism. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: We may find surreptitiously in doing ekg that they may be an old heart attack. We work up the heart to find out if there is clogging of arteries or by echo how well the heart is functioning. If it is acute with symptoms and ekg suggestive of heart attack, the person is admitted to the hospital for blood tests and proper treatment by the cardiologist either invasively or by meds. ...Read more
