Although Acute Myocardial Infarct (AMI) from its classic symptomatology added or not to electrocardiographic changes is a significant cause of perioperative associated mortality, when it is only plotted from the enzymatic curve, recent data points towards the existence of similar mortality. Considered as a biological marker of a more recent generation, the high sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTnT) analysis may give clues on whether a rupture of the oxygen (O2) is occurring or not offer and demand balance, without any association with other manifestations, which opens a gap to be investigated, when the diagnostic search after myocardial ischemia (MI), something that is not done unless the patient is under high risk or has a confirmed history of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). This review explores the possible associated factors when analyzing the risks of AMI and MI in the perioperative period.
