Diagnosis of myocardial infarction after aortic valve replacement with high-sensitivity troponins

The Universal Definition for type 5 myocardial infarction (MI) applies to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), while perioperative MIs for other cardiac surgeries are rarely studied and not specifically defined. We assessed whether high-sensitivity troponin (hs-TnT), with or without concurrent ischaemic changes on electrocardiogram or echocardiogram, predicted mortality and morbidity after aortic valve replacement (AVR).
