Troponin T level <0.06 ng/mL. NT-proBNP level <5,000 ng/L. Creatinine clearance 30 mL/min (unless on chronic stable dialysis).
Under the new universal definition, troponin is the only recommended diagnostic biomarker for MI. ... Troponin levels are commonly elevated without any myocardial injury in chronic kidney disease.
A novel 1-hour algorithm to rule in or rule out acute myocardial infarction (MI) by incorporating high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T baseline values and changes may have substantially accelerated management, ... They had high-sensitivity cardiac
Researchers identified 21,668 inpatients in the Veterans Affairs central databases in 2006 who had elevated troponin levels and were eventually discharged from the hospital. ... There was also some variability in troponin assays at some medical centers
Cardiac biomarkers include cardiac troponin I or T, MB fraction of creatinine phosphokinase (CK-MB), and myoglobin. ... Cardiac troponin is the most reliable biomarker for all types of MI because it has high myocardial specificity and high clinical
All hospitals measured cardiac troponin with both the contemporary assay and the hs-cTnI assay simultaneously throughout the trial. ... Three study authors received honoraria from Abbott Laboratories, which also provided cardiac troponin assay reagents,
His left wrist demonstrated pain, effusion, and warmth. Troponin on admission was 3.57 mg/mL and peaked to 9.26 mg/mL. ... Signs and symptoms may mimic acute myocardial infarction, with chest pain and elevated troponins.
Laboratory testing showed a normal CBC, electrolytes, glucose and troponin I of less than 0.01. ... Because the patient's initial complaint was chest pain, the ER physician anchored on a cardiac origin for the problem despite a normal EKG and
His resting EKG suggested an old inferior wall infarct and his troponins were normal.
This issue also includes an Expert Analysis offering advice on how to interpret cardiac troponin levels in patients with chronic kidney disease and suspected acute coronary syndrome.
