BACKGROUND In the present study, we aimed to analyze the diagnostic and prognostic potential of a newly developed high-sensitive troponin T assay and compared these results with those of a contemporary troponin T assay in 2 distinct patient cohorts, one including patients with evident ACS and the other one including patients with general chest pain.

While both chronic congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) impose a substantial disease burden and share aetiological and epidemiological associations, they have largely been studied separately. The aim of our study was to assess the prevalence and the prognostic implications of the coexistence of left ventricular(More)
AIMS We prospectively studied the additive value of N-terminal probrain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in relation to the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) risk score and the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) joint prognostic classification, and compared the predictive capacity of NT-proBNP, troponin T (TnT),(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the prognostic value of N-terminal B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in two independent samples of patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and normal troponin T (TnT) values. BACKGROUND Recently assessment of NT-proBNP has been studied in patients with ACS. However, the clinical(More)
AIMS Reciprocating atrioventricular tachycardia can be categorized into common slow-fast atrioventricular node re-entrant (AVNRT) and orthodromic atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia (AVRT). The electrocardiogram (ECG) during tachycardia is useful in distinguishing these two mechanisms. The presence of a pseudo-R'-wave in lead V1 or pseudo-S-wave in(More)
BACKGROUND We performed this study to develop a new scoring system to stratify different levels of risk in patients admitted to hospital with a diagnosis of unstable angina (UA), which is a complex syndrome that encompasses different outcomes. Many prognostic variables have been described but few efforts have been made to group them in order to enhance(More)
AIMS To assess the management strategies applied in non-ST elevation acute ischaemic syndromes in Argentina, the factors influencing the choice of treatment, and their relationship to short- and long-term (1 year) patient outcomes. METHODS AND RESULTS We conducted a 1 month, prospective, population-based survey in 77 hospitals (all over the country). We(More)
Hyperglycemia after cardiac surgery is a common finding associated with the worse outcomes affecting both diabetic and non diabetic patients. Despite the large number of publications available, there is no universally accepted approach to this problem. In an initiative of the Emergency Council of the Argentine Society of Cardiology, local experts gathered(More)
