Background:Cardiac troponins are the preferred biomarker to diagnose myocardial injury. Complicating the interpretation of serial troponins in patients with end-stage renal disease, it has been shown that the hemodialysis procedure results in a small but significant decline in high-sensitivity cardiac troponins (hs-cTnT). This raises the possibility that continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) might similarly alter cardiac troponin levels and affect their interpretation when cardiac ischemia...
