    Look up what "troponin" means. The part I don't understand from your post is the word "treatment".

    Yeah, not too sure why that is listed as a treatment.

    What is troponin? What does this number mean? Why would they be looking at this post-surgery?

    Maybe they are wanting you to know what the normal level of indicator of MI is.
