Myocardial infarction

Researchers tested the hypothesis that adding additional information to a high-sensitivity cardiac troponin algorithm would improve diagnosis of ED patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI). ... For patients with suspected acute

PE in pregnancy, normal troponins

Clinicians should understand the limitations of troponin testing as a method to diagnose acute myocardial infarction and order the test only when there is a clear indication, the authors advised. ... The study's limitations include the use of a single

Many patients in ED and hospital have troponin levels above stated upper limit of normal

Clinicians should understand the limitations of troponin testing as a method to diagnose acute myocardial infarction and order the test only when there is a clear indication, the authors advised. ... The study's limitations include the use of a single

High-sensitivity troponin I with or without advanced cardiac imaging may help assess risk in patients who present with chest pain

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.

Testing the tests

Recent research has shown that elevated troponin levels are associated with worse outcomes. ... Studies of patients with gastrointestinal bleeds and respiratory disease have found that patients with elevated troponin have higher mortality years after

Acute coronary syndrome: A cardiac conundrum

biomarker(s) such as troponin I, troponin T or CK-MB (creatine kinase muscle or brain type). ... The diagnosis of “demand ischemia” is sometimes used when patients experience release of cardiac biomarkers, like troponin.

Troponin

In patients treated invasively, there was a paradoxical decrease in mortality risk at the highest troponin levels. ... In those treated with noninvasive therapy, troponin level and mortality were directly correlated.

Elevated troponin T may help predict 30-day mortality

Troponin T levels independently predict 30-day mortality after noncardiac surgery, a new study found. ... The patients' peak troponin T measurements were collected and compared with 30-day mortality rates.

Fluid balance, MI rule-out, anticoagulation after hemorrhage, and more

The results also only apply to the studied assay, not any future troponin T assays. ... The ularitide group did have greater reductions in systolic blood pressure and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide, but no significant difference in changes in

In the News

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.
