The usefulness of the serum glutamic-oxalacetic transaminase (SGO-T) determination was cited in Part I of this report,1 and the limitations of this test in the evaluation of cardiac injury following accidents were demonstrated. This part will present an evaluation of the SGO-T test in cerebral vascular accidents and right heart failure, conditions that may be accompanied by myocardial infarction, and that involve tissues rich in glutamic-oxalacetic transaminase (GO-T) (brain and liver, respectively).
A cerebral vascular accident may be the presenting and sometimes the only symptom of a coronary occlusion. Bean and Read2, 3 described eight cases
