Low plasma Chromium in patients with coronary artery and heart diseases
- 42 Downloads
Plasma chromium concentrations have been determined for 150 patients. These were subjected to coronary artery cineangiography and thereby divided into three groups: group CAD (those with coronary artery disease), group HD (those with heart disease, but no CAD) and group N (those with no CAD and no HD). Weighted, average chromium levels for these groups were 1.05, 1.72, and 8.51 ng/mL, respectively. The distributions of plasma chromium levels for the three groups suggest that an upper limit for plasma chromium may be established (6 ng/mL in this work) beyond which CAD may be considered to be extremely unlikely, thus eliminating the need for a certain number of cineangiographic examinations.
