Diagnostic value of exercise-induced changes in circulating high sensitive troponin T in stable chest pain patients.

OBJECTIVE We investigated the diagnostic value of exercise-induced increase in cardiac Troponin T (cTnT) in stable chest pain subjects. METHODS CTnT was measured before and 20 h after an exercise test in 157 subjects suspected of coronary artery disease (CAD). RESULTS CAD subjects (n = 41) had higher baseline cTnT levels compared to non-CAD subjects (n… CONTINUE READING
