Cardiac Troponin I Levels in Dogs with Dirofilariosis and without Dirofilariosis

Serkal Gazyagci, Mehmet Tolga Dogru and Bugrahan Bekir Yagci

Abstract:
Differences about Cardiac Troponin I (cTnI) levels between the dogs without dirofilariasis were investigated in this study. There were statistically significant differences about cTnI levels between the groups (For Group 1: 5.55 ng mL-1 (2.1-10.0); for Group 2: 0.05 ng mL-1 (0.03-0.06) p<0.001). As well as heart rate, respiration rate and temperature, cTnI levels were also found as statistically significantly important (p<0.001, p = 0.008 and p = 0.012, respectively). There was increased relative risk ratio for the body temperature group 2 (Relative risk ratio: 6.667 (2.827-15.724, Confidence interval: %95, p<0.001). There are statistically significant differences between the dogs with and without dirofilariasis about cTnI levels. It was speculated that cTnI level might be important indicator for evaluation of myocardial injury in the dogs with dirofilariasis.
