BACKGROUND High-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays have improved the detection of acute coronary syndrome. AIM To examine the possible incremental value of copeptin in the detection of acute coronary syndrome. METHODS We designed a prospective cohort study to compare the performance of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) measured at admission in combination with copeptin, and the performance of hs-cTnT alone, measured at admission, 3 hours and 6 hours, in patients with suspected… CONTINUE READING
