Enzyme chemical studies of pericardial fluid



Enzyme chemical studies of pericardial fluid



Zeitschrift für Rechtsmedizin. Journal of Legal Medicine 102(1): 25-31



The authors examined the enzyme activities of LDH, CK, GOT, GPT and gamma-GT in blood-free pericardial fluid. The cases were divided into seven groups: a shot in the head with instant death, sudden cardiac death, poisoning, brain death with a long survival time, sudden infant death syndrome, and asphyxia. Taking all five enzymes into consideration, the cases of cardiac death differed significantly on the 1% level from the head shooting. However, concerning CK sudden cardiac death differed on the 5% level from the deaths as a result of poisoning. The wide range of the results, however, does not permit any reliable association of one single value with any of the respective groups.
