Tn-I

Cardiac troponins are currently the most sensitive and specific biochemical markers of myocardial necrosis. There are three types of troponin in heart muscle fibers. Those are troponin-C, -I, and -T. Together they contribute to make cardiac muscle fibers contract. The clinical measurement of serum Tn-I has become an important tool in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. Serum Tn-I is a more reliable than creatine kinase as a prognostic marker in people with ischemic chest pain. National and international scientific organizations have suggested the use of troponins, Tn-I and Tn-T, when implementing new diagnostic strategies in patients with acute coronary syndrome.

CK-MB

Creatine Kinase (CK), also known as Creatine Phosphokinase or Phospho-creatine Kinase is an enzyme expressed by various tissues and cell types. Disruption of cell membranes due to hypoxia or other injury releases CK from the cellular cytosol into the systemic circulation. CK is a dimeric enzyme consisting of two subunits, which can be either B-(brain type) or M- (muscle type). These subunits associate to form three isoenzymic forms: CK-BB, CK-MM and CK-MB. These isoenzymes are expressed at different levels in various human tissues. Though CK-MM is the most abundant CK isoenzyme in the cardiac muscles, CK-MB constitutes about 20% of the total CK in the cardiac muscle tissue. Elevated levels of total CK is not specific to the myocardial tissue and may be observed in patients with skeletal muscle injury and certain other disorders but as CK-MB is more specific to myocardial tissue, CK–MB levels along with total CK can be considered as an important diagnostic indicator of myocardial infarction. The concentration of CKMB in the healthy adult is below 7.0ng/ml but it shows great increases in several malignant diseases, mostly primary coronary syndrome, myocardial injury and infarction. CK-MB has been found to be more sensitive and early indicator of myocardial injury because it has a lower basal level and a much narrower normal range. Medical literature commonly reveals that following an acute myocardial infarction, CK-MB levels become elevated in 4 to 9 hours after the onset of chest pain, attain peak at 10 to 24 hours, and return to normal within 2 to 3 days. Use of CK-MB level as a percentage of total CK in the diagnosis of myocardial infraction is the most important clinical application of CK measurements in clinical chemistry.

D-Dimer

D-dimer, a degradation product of cross-linked fibrin formed during activation of the coagulation system, is commonly used to exclude thromboembolic disease in outpatients suspected of having deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonaryembolism (PE).[1] DVT and PE is relatively common and can cause sudden, fatal embolic events in the pulmonary arteries and other regions. [2-3] Measurement of the D-Dimer level in plasma has been used as a screening strategy for subclinical DVT. A systematic review reported that a normal range of a highly sensitive D-dimer level accurately ruled out DVT in patients classified as having a low or moderate clinical probability of DVT. The DVT is a high-risk factor for the stroke because of advanced age, hemiplegia, and coagulation disorders, and DVT can cause paradoxical embolic stroke via a right-to left shunt. Thus, it is important to monitor the level of D-Dimer the incidence and characteristics of DVT in acute stroke patients.[4-7] The Plasma D-dimer level has proven to be useful for DVT screening in chronic stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation.[8-10] National and international scientific organizations have suggested the use of these markers when implementing new diagnostic strategies in patients with coronary syndrome. Since D-Dimer is well known to be an important prognostic indicator of heart diseases, its most definitive role is on monitoring post-treatment clinical status and the post therapeutic evaluation of Patients.
