Abstract

AbstractPolytrauma patients represent one of the most challenging medical conditions. Developing methods of assessing the risk of death in these patients is a continous effort for the medical field. In this study we evaluate the creatine kinaze isoenzyme MB (CK-MB) and troponin as markers of increased risk of death in the first 24 hours after admission in polytrauma patients with associated thoracic trauma.The study was conducted on 33 patients treated in the emergency department of County Clinical Emergency Hospital Constanta between 2014 and 2017.The results of the study suggest that CK-MB does not offer additional information related to the risk of death in these patients, while in the case of troponin, higher values were observed in the patients that didn’t survive after 24 hours of followup.
