Methods: Study population was composed of 400 consecutive patients who underwent successful coronary stent implantation. Forty-six patients (11.5%) had CK enzyme levels >2 times the upper limit of normal. This group was compared to 100 patients with no CK release after stenting. Results: Baseline, angiographic and procedural characteristics did not differ between patients with and without postprocedural CK elevation. The significant predictors of CK elevation by multiple logistic regression analysis are unstable angina (p<0.001, OR=5.62 with 95% CI of 2.35-13.45), multiple stenting (p=0.04, OR=2.55 with 95% CI of1.02-6.40) and side branch occlusion (p=0.03,OR=12.20 with 95% CI of 1.22-121.71). By multivariate analysis, postprocedural CK release was found to be a significant determinant of subsequent target vessel revascularization (p=0.032,OR=3.84 with 95% CI of 1.12-13.18). Conclusion: Our results indicate that side branch occlusion, implantation of > 1 stents per lesion and coronary stenting in unstable angina pectoris are strong predictors of postprocedural CK release. There is a significant relationship between postprocedural CK elevation and subsequent target vessel revascularization.
