Abstract

The diagnosis and staging of acute cholecystitis, upon a lot of diagnostic methods and some scoring systems, is still a great clinical problem. The aim of the study was to investigate if serum Troponin I is elevated in patients with acute cholecystitis. Following informed consent, 65 patients with clinical and laboratory signs of acute cholecystitis were enrolled. All patients had measured serum Troponin I level and an abdominal ultrasound was done before definitive treatment was performed. Increased serum Troponin I level was found in most patients with severe form of acute cholecystitis (p < 0.00001). It reached sensitivity of 94.5% and specificity of 57.1% of this test. In multiple regression analysis Troponin I significantly correlated (p < 0.05) with the serum aspartate aminotransferase (r = 0.27), gamma-glutamyl transferase (r = 0.25) and gallbladder wall (> 6 mm) thickness (r = 0.58). Our study confirms that in most patients with severe and acute cholecystitis, serum Troponin I is increased. Troponin I level is in a lower range than it would be in patients with cardiac muscle damage or necrosis. Measuring serum Troponin I is a fast, reliable and widely performed test that could, with other routinely measured parameters, help in early diagnosis of the severe form of acute cholecystitis.

KVANTITATIVNA ANALIZA SERUMSKOG TROPONINA I U BOLESNIKA S AKUTNOM UPALOM ŽUČNJAKA ----- Dijagnozu i stupnjevanje akutne upale žučnjaka i dalje je, unatoč brojnim dijagnostičkim metodama, ostao težak zadatak. Cilj ovog rada bio je istražiti ulogu povišenih serumskih vrijednosti Troponina I u bolesnika s akutnim kolecistitisom. Nakon informiranog pristanka u studiju smo uključili 65 bolesnika s kliničkim i laboratorijskim znakovima akutne upale žučnjaka. Svim bolesnicima je mjerena razina serumskog Troponina I te im je učinjen i transabdominalni ultrazvuk prije početka liječenja. U većine bolesnika s teškim oblikom akute upale žučnjaka nađene su povišene vrijednosti Troponina I (p<0,00001). Postigli smo osjetljivost testa od 94,5% i specifičnost testa od 57,1%. Testom multiple regresije statistički značajnija korelacija (p<0,05) postignuta je za Troponin I, za serumsku aspart aminotransferazu (r=0,27), gamaglutamil transferazu (r=0,25) i za debljinu stjenke žučnjaka (>6 mm) (r=0,58). Naša studija potvrđuje da je većina bolesnika s teškim oblikom akutne upale žučnjaka imala povišene vrijednosti Troponina, ali u vrijednostima koje nisu karakteristične za oštećenje ili nekrozu srčanog mišića. Mjerenje Troponina I brza je i široko primjenjiva metoda koja uz ostale rutinske parametre može pomoći u dijagnostici i stupnjevanju teških oblika akutne upale žučnjaka.
