Heart Cardiac Enzymes Correlation with Infarct Size?

i'm being confused about this, kaplan say these isn't any correlation b/w peak ck-mb level and infarct size.
when i searched the net i found a lot of article talking about correlation

the standard this is that the peak CK-MB level does not predict infarct size; however, it can be used to detect early reinfarction

look at this articles
