Value of cardiac biomarkers in patients with acute pulmonary embolism

Prognostic stratification of patients with PE is important in management and potentially improve clinical outcome. Cardiac biomarkers are used as an adjunct to clinical and echocardiographic risk stratification in a variety of circumstances, (Creatine-kinase-MB “CK-MB”) and cardiac troponin I (cTnI) are most widely used because of their high sensitivities, and very high specificity of troponin for heart muscle injury. Evidence is mounting that myoglobin’s sensitivity for myocardial necrosis combined with its unique release and clearance properties may render it particularly attractive as a risk marker either alone or in combination with other markers.
