A number of conditions can lead to an elevation in cardiac marker level, the most important one being myocardial infarction (MI), commonly known as a heart attack. Many of the markers are enzymes; the term "cardiac enzymes" is sometimes used. However, not all the markers are enzymes. Troponin for example is not an enzyme in formal terms.
