Unremarkable chest X-ray for acute disease. Normal cardiac markers, especially troponin level in non-ischemic range. ... This is most confusing when the significance of an elevated troponin level goes unclarified.
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.
Mr. Jackson had chest pain and an elevated troponin. Dr. Smith was convinced it was unstable angina and possibly an infarct with an abnormal EKG. ... Then he went back upstairs and saw Mr. Jackson again. His repeat troponin was normal, as was his EKG.
Switching from a contemporary cardiac troponin I assay to a high-sensitivity one for patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome did not reduce myocardial infarction or cardiovascular mortality during follow-up, ... Both the high-sensitivity cardiac
Troponin alone was highly effective at ruling out acute myocardial infarction and adverse cardiac events within 30 days but would have missed 3 cases of unstable angina, the study found. ... 56.2%; P<0.001) and lower specificity (94.0% vs. 96.4%; P<0.001)
Percutaneous coronary intervention-related MI is defined, in patients with normal baseline troponin, as elevation >5 99th percentile. ... If the baseline troponin value was elevated, it is defined as a rise of more than 20%.
Experts offer advice on using cardiac troponin and natriuretic peptides to optimize patient care. ... However, carbon monoxide poisoning can elevate troponin, as can myocarditis. “You know that critically ill patients can have elevated troponins and
Prognostic value of acute-to-chronic glycemic ratio better than glycemia at admission for AMI patients
Patients' A/C glycemic ratio predicted a composite of in-hospital mortality, acute pulmonary edema, and cardiogenic shock as well as troponin I peak value, a prospective study in Italy found. ... A/C glycemic ratio remained an independent predictor of
Amyloid-β (1-40) 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 acute coronary ... In both cohorts, Aβ40 was
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
