|Condition or disease|
Pro-calcitonin is a type of protein found in the blood. This protein has recently be found to be elevated in patients with diseases of the arteries of the heart such as heart attack.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is widely used in the treatment of many patients with blockage in the arteries of the heart.
the investigators normally used a marker called troponin after cardiac catheterization. However, this marker may not be specific.
Pro-calcitonin has been found to be a useful marker for the detection of myocardial injury. the value of Pro-calcitonin as a marker for the identification of myocardial damage undergoing PCI has not yet been studied.

patients with coronary complication and patients without coronary complications.
pro-calcitonin will be measured in both groups to see if any correlation.
- Pro-calcitonin blood level [ Time Frame: "0,24 hours post cardiac intervention" ]
