Myocarditis might be associated with increased markers of myocardial injury. However, data on novel biomarkers, such as high-sensitive Troponin T (hs-TnT) or Copeptin, are lacking. This study aimed to determine the diagnostic and prognostic utility of biomarkers in patients with suspected myocarditis. Seventy patients with clinically suspected myocarditis (age 43.4 ± 14 years, 76 % male, ejection fraction 36.9 ± 17.8) underwent endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) and were followed for 7.5 (2–21) months… CONTINUE READING
