High-sensitive troponin T: a novel biomarker for prognosis and disease severity in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.


PAH (pulmonary arterial hypertension) is the leading cause of fatal right ventricular failure. However, rarely detectable, cTnT [cardiac TnT (troponin T)] is a significant prognostic marker. Therefore the aim of the present study was to evaluate the usefulness of a novel high-sensitive cTnT (hsTnT) assay as a parameter for functional and prognostic… (More)
