Ability of troponins to predict adverse outcomes in patients with renal insufficiency and suspected acute coronary syndromes: a case-matched study.


OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the utility of cardiac troponin T and troponin I for predicting outcomes in patients presenting with suspected acute coronary syndromes and renal insufficiency relative to that observed in similar patients without renal disease. BACKGROUND Cardiac troponin T and troponin I have shown promise as tools… (More)
