Abstract

The exact incidence of cardiac troponin-I elevation after thoracic surgery and its correlation with other clinical parameters have not been fully described. The aims of this study were to determine the frequency of postoperative cardiac troponin-I elevation following lung or pleural surgery for suspected cancer, and to investigate correlations with baseline clinical characteristics, the C-reactive protein level, and perioperative parameters.
