Authors report an analysis of 101 patients' perioperative data in the view of myocardial necrosis development. Perioperative myocardial infarction is defined as simultaneous detection of new Q wave, and myocardial specific enzyme release with concomitant, transient pump failure. They conclude by the data of patients operated upon, that the quoted criteria were detected simultaneously in 9 patients. Other 7 patients had CK-MB levels of pathological level, but without evidences of any other myocardial infarction criteria. Minimal myocardial mass loss as a sort of terminology is introduced, which is obviously not considered as equal to true myocardial infarction.
