Serum Leptin Levels in Older Patients with Hip Fracture - Impact on Peri-operative Myocardial Injury
To evaluate whether there is a relationship between admission serum leptin concentrations and peri-operative myocardial injury, 238 consecutive older patients (mean age 81.9+/-7.9 years; 172 women) with low-trauma hip fracture were assessed. Myocardial injury as defined by elevated serum cardiac troponin I was associated with lower leptin levels analyzed as continuous or categorical variables. Patients with serum leptin concentrations <12ng/ml (medium value) had a two-fold greater increased...[Show more]
