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 cardiac troponin T levels.
His resting EKG suggested an old inferior wall infarct and his troponins were normal.
The trial included 400 consecutive patients without known coronary artery disease and a negative initial serum troponin level. ... The study hospital did not have access to high-sensitivity troponin testing, which would have reduced the number of
The statement authors proposed a diagnostic algorithm in which patients being evaluated for a suspected acute MI should have the following excluded: clinically overt causes of an elevated troponin level, such ... The statement authors noted that use of
Laboratory studies reveal a serum creatine kinase level of 6600 U/L, creatinine level of 1.1 mg/dL (97.2 µmol/L), and a normal troponin level.
Troponin T levels independently predict 30-day mortality after noncardiac surgery, a recent study found. ... The patients' peak troponin T measurements were collected and compared with 30-day mortality rates.
Using results from high-sensitivity cardiac troponin testing at arrival and at one hour, researchers were able to rule in or out non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) in the ... High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) and
Higher initial levels of cardiovascular proadrenomedullin, proendothelin-1, troponin T, pro B-type natriuretic peptide, and interleukin-6 were associated with cardiovascular (CV) events in patients hospitalized with community-acquired pneumonia
While unrelated to VBP, specific documentation of NSTEMI for patients with acute coronary syndrome and elevated troponin levels is also essential for correct DRG assignment and hospital reimbursement when the aggressive
Coca explained. In response to findings like these, researchers developed new classifications for kidney injury, and the hunt for a “troponin of the kidney” began.
