The severe and acute manifestation of coronary artery disease (CAD) is acute coronary syndrome (ACS); therefore, prompt diagnosis can save lives. Cardiac biomarkers that are accepted to use in evaluating ACS are creatine kinase muscle/brain subtype (CK-MB), cardiac troponin I (CTnI), or cardiac troponin T (CTnT). However, these markers have several drawbacks, such as prolonged time to rise for prompt diagnosis and elevation in patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKD). Lately, potential,

Several miRNAs, such as, miR-1, miR-133a, miR-133b, miR-208a, miR-208b, and miR-499a, greatly rise in concentration in the plasma or serum of patients with acute cardiac ischemia, signifying their cardiac specificity and promising biomarkers in patients with ACS. This systematic review aims to elucidate the role of cardio-specific miRNA in acute myocardial ischemia (AMI) and its relationship with other cardiac biomarkers.
