Özet

Background: Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have a central role in disease progression after ischemia-reperfusion injury. However, its prognostic significance in cardiac arrest (CA) patients having cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between admission MMP-9 level and early mortality in CA patients.
