a subsequent troponin level of 4.85 mg/dL at 10:10 a.m. ... Cardiac enzymes (CK-MB fraction or troponin I or T) may be elevated in myopericarditis.
In both cohorts, Aβ40 was associated with mortality, even after adjustment for variables including age, sex, diabetes, high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T and C-reactive protein levels, revascularization, and ACS type ... They cautioned that as an
Very low levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin may not be accurate for ruling out inducible myocardial ischemia in certain patients, according to a new study. ... Researchers in Switzerland performed a prospective diagnostic cohort study at a
Researchers studied 4,033 patients from 171 centers with NSTE ACS and elevated troponin levels.
early cardiac troponin measurement (within six hours of arrival), and. participation in a regional or national acute MI registry. ... Most of the data were also gathered before high-sensitivity troponin assays became standard.
P<0.001), higher heart rate (P=0.017), lower oxygen saturation (P=0.033), higher creatinine (P<0.001), elevated troponin level (P<0.001), active cancer (P=0.002),
The findings are biologically plausible, they noted, theorizing that the acute myocardial injury indicated by elevated troponin promotes ventricular remodeling and heart failure progression. ... The results show that cardiac troponin could provide
Troponin levels are nonspecific relative to the etiology of cardiac myonecrosis and occur in many nonischemic clinical conditions. ... and flow diagrams to help clinicians determine when to use troponin in therapeutic decision making.
I plus advanced coronary artery disease (CAD) assessment with CTA versus conventional troponin and traditional CAD assessment. ... ACS was diagnosed in 10.6%. All patients had normal levels of conventional troponin at ED presentation.
The time interval between troponin elevation and death potentially allows physicians to modify prognosis,” they concluded. ... is unlikely that patients actually will benefit from routine troponin measurement after noncardiac surgery.
