Measurement of circulating cardiac biomarkers has enabled early diagnosis and risk assessment of acute coronary syndrome. Heart type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) is a relatively novel marker for the diagnosis of myocardial injury. The purpose of the present study was to compare H-FABP with Troponin I (cTnI) and creatine kinase myocardial band (CK-MB) in determining myocardial injury in patients with early stage of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
