OBJECTIVES We investigated whether the addition of 24 h of continuous vectorcardiography ST segment monitoring (cVST) for an early (within 24 h of the latest episode of angina) determination of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) could provide additional prognostic information in patients with unstable coronary artery disease (UCAD), i.e., unstable angina and non-Q wave myocardial infarction. BACKGROUND Determination of cTnT at admission and cVST are individually reported to be valuable techniques for… CONTINUE READING
