Elevated cardiac troponin T predicts adverse outcomes in hypertensive patients.

Abstract

Ongoing myocardial damage detected as elevated serum cardiac troponin T (cTnT) indicates increased risk for future cardiac events in patients with chronic heart failure. Whether elevated cTnT is associated with adverse outcomes in patients with hypertension (HT) without left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction is unknown.We measured cTnT levels in 176… (More)
