The article presents a study of serum enzyme changes after cardiac catheterization and angiographic procedures. Elevations of the "cardiac enzymes" creatine phosphokinase (CPK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) are sensitive, but not specific, indicators of cardiac muscle injury. It studies serum levels of total CPK and its three isoenzymes, total LDH and its five isoenzymes, SGOT, and glutamic-pyruvic transaminase before cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography and at 4 and 24 hours after angiographic study to detect the amount of change and source of enzyme liberation.
