By combining clinical information and EKG findings with H-FABP and high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T
(hs-cTnT) concentrations, the Manchester Acute Coronary Syndromes (MACS) clinical prediction model can stratify patients with acute chest pain into 4 risk groups.
Prognostic value of cardiac troponin T
after noncardiac surgery: 6-month follow-up data.
3] Nonstandard abbreviations: AMI, acute myocardial infarction; ACS, acute coronary syndrome; CHD, coronary heart disease; hs, high-sensitivity; NSTEMI, non-ST-segment myocardial infarction; cTnl, cardiac troponin 1; cTnT, cardiac troponin T
It is noteworthy that when later samples (collected at 8 and 16 hours after onset of symptoms) are included, troponin I's ability to predict mortality seemed to approach that of the combination model involving troponin T
and the ECG.
Sample Time of sample Total CK CK-MB Troponin T
Small changes in troponin T
levels are common in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and are linked to higher mortality.
Prognostic value of troponin T
and I among asymptomatic patients with end-stage renal disease: a meta-analysis.
Implications of adjustment of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T
The antibodies link to cardiac troponin T
in the sample resulting in a visible color change.
The content and distribution of troponin I, troponin T
, myoglobin, and alpha-hydroxybutyric acid dehydrogenase in the human heart.
The new test uses seven drops of blood to detect a protein, cardiac troponin T
, that has been recognized as a new marker for heart damage.
Based on the fourth generation Roche cardiac troponin T
(cTnT) assay data (an assay that is not highly sensitive), 94% of patients (3984/4215) had increased values.
