Specificity of serum creatine kinase isoenzymes in diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction

British Medical Journal
A Konttinen, H Somer

Abstract

A study of the diagnostic value of serum creatine kinase (CK) isoenzymes showed that MB isoenzyme, which characterizes heart tissue, was a specific and sensitive indicator of acute myocardial infarction. In cases where the clinical picture was complicated by ventricular tachycardia, severe congestive failure, shock, or resuscitation procedures heart, liver, and muscle enzymes were increased. There was also an increase in lactate dehydrogenase isoenzyme values in these cases; indeed, the only enzyme test that correlated well with electrocardiographic and necropsy findings was the MB isoenzyme.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
