oa Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia - Myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery : a new clinical entity : SASA refresher course texts
Objectives: The objective was to determine the diagnostic criteria of a prognostically important troponin elevation following non-cardiac surgery.
Conclusion: Myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery should be considered a new clinical entity. A troponin leak alone is considered to be prognostically important. The presence of ischaemic features should not be considered as a criterion for intervention in troponin-positive patients following non-cardiac surgery.
