Troponin elevations after electroconvulsive therapy: the need for caution.
Am J Med. 2011 Mar;124(3):229-34
Authors: Martinez MW, Rasmussen KG, Mueller PS, Jaffe AS
Electroconvulsive therapy is used to treat patients with severe or resistant depression. Troponin elevations are associated with an adverse prognosis, and it is well known that central nervous system insults can cause biochemical evidence of cardiac injury. No study previously has studied this with electroconvulsive therapy.
