Abstract

Background: An increasing number of studies have shown that ischaemia-modified albumin (IMA) levels rise in a number of acute ischaemic conditions such as cerebral infarct, myocardial infarct, pulmonary infarct and mesenteric infarct, suggesting that IMA may be useful as a diagnostic marker. A study was undertaken to investigate the effect on IMA levels of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), frequently encountered at the outset or during the course of diseases such as pulmonary embolism and cerebral infarct.
