Postoperative Troponin in Renal Dysfunction After Cardiac Surgery

2018-06-05 22:52:09 | BioPortfolio


Elevated level of troponin is frequently observed among patients with renal dysfunction. Increase in troponin after cardiac surgery may predict postoperative outcome in cardiac surgery patients. However, the relationship between the increased troponin and outcome after cardiac surgery has not been fully elucidated in patients with renal dysfunction.


This is a retrospective observational study to evaluate the prognostic value of postoperative troponin in patients with renal dysfunction undergoing cardiac surgery. Electrical medical records of patients who underwent cardiac surgery between 2004 and 2015 will be assessed. Perioperative laboratory data including troponin and glomerular filtration rate, type of surgery, and outcome variables including mortality will be analysed to determine the prognostic value of postoperative value of postoperative troponin in patients with renal dysfunction undergoing cardiac surgery.

Mechanisms of kidney dysfunction in the cirrhotic patient: Non-hepatorenal acute-on-chronic kidney damage considerations.

Renal dysfunction is a common finding in cirrhotic patients and has a great physiologic, and therefore, prognostic relevance. The combination of liver disease and renal dysfunction can occur as a resu...

Early assessment of cardiac troponin I predicts the postoperative cardiac status and clinical course after congenital heart disease surgery.

Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) is a regulatory protein with a high sensitivity and specificity for cardiac injury. Preoperative and postoperative elevations of cTnI are usually considered predictors of the...

Renoprotective effects of pirfenidone on chronic renal allograft dysfunction by reducing renal interstitial fibrosis in a rat model.

Pirfenidone (PFD) has been used as medication for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis due to its ability in reducing lung fibrosis. However, the underlying mode of action in renal fibrosis during chronic re...

Arterial blood pressure at liver transplant evaluation predicts renal histology in candidates with renal dysfunction.

Renal dysfunction is common in liver transplant (LT) candidates but differentiating between reversible and irreversible renal injury can be difficult. Kidney biopsy might be helpful in differentiating...

Renal dysfunction and long-term clinical outcomes in patients with venous thromboembolism: From the COMMAND VTE Registry.

Patients with renal dysfunction are at high risk for developing venous thromboembolism (VTE). However, the impact of renal dysfunction on recurrent VTE remains to be clarified. We assessed the relatio...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It is a cardiac-specific protein that binds to TROPOMYOSIN. It is released from damaged or injured heart muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Defects in the gene encoding troponin T result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.

One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It inhibits F-actin-myosin interactions.

One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex of skeletal muscle. It is a calcium-binding protein.

General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

Condition where a primary dysfunction of either heart or kidney results in failure of the other organ (e.g., HEART FAILURE with worsening RENAL INSUFFICIENCY).
