The protocols of management of patients entering emergency rooms because thoracic pain of potential ischemic origin without necrosis include serial measurement s of biomarkers, stress tests and, in many cases, unnecessary hospitalization. In this context, detection of metabolic markers, which represent dynamic changes in just a few minutes after ischemia, is an attractive option both for diagnosis precision and for rapid and efficient management. In this communication, we used NMR metabolic profiling to characterize metabolically blood plasma of patients pre and post angioplasty. Statistical multivariate analysis showed differences in signals belonging mainly to ketonic bodies and fatty acids.
