ICD 9 code for Elevated Troponin or (Createnine Kinase) CK's

Creatine kinase (CK), also known as creatine phosphokinase (CPK) or phospho-creatine kinase (and sometimes wrongfully as creatinine kinase), is an enzyme present primarily in the heart and skeletal muscles, and also brain.

Any injury to any of these structures will lead to a measurable increase in CK levels.
