Elevated serum cardiac troponin I in older patients with hip fracture: incidence and prognostic significance
Introduction: Cardiovascular complications are the main causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with osteoporotic hip fracture (HF). The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the incidence and prognostic significance of elevated cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in the early peri-operative period in older patients with HF. Materials and methods: A blind evaluation of myocardial injury as detected by cTnI elevation in 238 consecutive older patients with low-trauma HF (mean age 81.9 ± 7.8...[Show more]
