Elevations in cardiac troponin measurements: False false-positives

Abstract

The development of assays for troponin markers has improved cardiovascular diagnosis. However, because the assays are so sensitive and specific, elevations are often detected in patients without overt coronary artery disease. Some would like to attribute such elevations to biological “false positives.” That is rarely the case. There can be analytic false… (More)
