ABSTRACT
Increase in the concentration of cardiac troponins is among the most reliable biochemical markers of acute ischemic heart diease. Chronically elevated concentration of troponins among dialyzed patients, without simultaneous presence of acute ischemia, is a commonly observed phenomenon. This causes difficulties in interpretation of the results obtained which, in some cases, lead to the misdiagnosis of the myocardial infarction in this special population of patients.
