Patients presenting to the emergency departments (ED) with symptoms of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and with a nondiagnostic electrocardiogram (ECG) pose a management challenge (1). Cardiac troponins [(cTns), tropinin I (cTnI) and tropinin T [cTnT)], creatine kinase (CK), and CK-MB are frequently used in the assessment of ACS. cTns are superior in their analytical specificity and diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for myocardial injury (2, 3). Findings from both animal and clinical studies… CONTINUE READING
