Abstract

Serum creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, and their isoenzymes were prospectively studied in 16 patients who underwent operative treatment of acute hip fractures. No perioperative myocardial infarctions occurred; however, two patients died of noncardiac causes. We found that skeletal muscle injury associated with operative treatment of acute hip fractures did not result in significant elevations of serum CK-MB or the LD-l/LD-2 ratio. CK-MB activity exceeding 5% of total CK activity was observed in five patients who did not experience acute perioperative myocardial infarction; however, no patient had an absolute CK-MB value exceeding 50 IU/L. Elevations of serum CK-MB exceeding 50 IU/L and a LD-l/LD-2 ratio exceeding 1.0, therefore, should not be attributed to skeletal muscle injury alone following the operative treatment of acute hip fractures.
