Nonsymptomatic Myocardial Injury After Radiofrequency and Cryoablation: A Study of Children and Patients With Congenital Heart Disease
Pediatric Cardiology, 06/01/2012
Will JC et al. – Elevations in both troponin T and troponin I levels were commonly observed after ablation, especially in ventricular wall ablation as well as with increasing numbers of radiofrequency applications. However, unlike in patients with acute coronary syndrome, these elevated levels had no specific significance. Reference values for each ablation target site were proposed in order to potentially detect additional subclinical injuries to the coronary arteries.
