Serum selenium concentration was prospectively measured using the method of thermoelectric atomic absorption spectrophotometry in 129 study participants distributed as follows in three groups: control group (n = 48) volunteers without known cardiac or lung disease; group I: patients with congestive cardiomyopathy (n = 48), group II: patients with myocardial infarction (n = 31). Serum selenium level was 84.73 +/- 1.79 micrograms.l-1 (m +/- sem) in the control group, 68.53 +/- 2.26 micrograms.l-1 in group I and 73.55 +/- 2.33 micrograms.l-1 in group II. The difference between group I and group II versus the control group was significant (p less than 0.01). There was no significant difference between group I and II.
