ABSTRACT:

Background: The rise in cardiac troponin T can cause acute and complicated coronary artery disorder. Objective: The study was organized mainly to identify the age of coronary stenosis on angiogram in patients with uneven angina having increased versus decreased troponin T-level. Methods: In this research, a total of two hundred cases were studied at Jinnah Hospital, Lahore from October 2017 to August 2018. The patients having confirmation of the presence of unbalanced angina were admitted. The blood specimens of the patients were taken after the 6-12 hours of the appearance of chest sting. Patients were classified into two groups. The classification was made on the basis of the level of troponin T. Before leaving the hospital, all patients went Coronary angiography. The complete identification of angiographic screens was made to identify the time requirement of laceration. A positive angiogram was observed in 200 patients. In 10 patients no symptoms of coronary artery disorder were found. The duration of coronary artery disorder was explained as detached, tubular and disseminated according to the criterion of ACC/AHA. Results: Total of 210 patients were added in the study. The average age of the patients was 53.3, ± SD 10.49. Majority of the patients were males about 79%. The females were lesser in number about 21%. The length of positive coronary and negative coronary was compared. The length of the discrete lesion was 6.0 against negative as 33.3%, tubular 59.3% and 48.3% and diffuse was 30.7% and 11.7%. Conclusion: It was observed in our study that unbalanced angina patients with enhanced troponin T had acute angiographic coronary artery stenosis, tubular and distributes scratch contrasting patients with negative troponin T levels. The patients suffering from troponin T were analyzed by using angiography. And then the level and sternness of coronary laceration were completely observed.
