PURPOSE: Cardiac depression occurs in sepsis despite a preservation of coronary blood flow in most patients and cardiac injury can be detected by an elevation of plasma cardiac troponin I (cTnI). The aim of our study is to determine, whether the release of cTnI from myocytes, is related to any modification of coronary perfusion pressure (COPP) or due to a direct toxic effect of different inflammatory mediators during sepsis.

METHODS: For 4 consecutive days after admission, plasma cTnI,...
