INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES We investigated the usefulness of taking two serial measurements of the high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) level for evaluating acute chest pain in patients with non-diagnostic ECG findings and normal levels of markers of myocardial cell injury (i.e., an inconclusive diagnosis). We hypothesized that the C-reactive protein concentration would be raised if symptoms were due to coronary endothelial damage or arteriosclerotic plaque rupture. METHODS The study… CONTINUE READING
