High-sensitive cardiac troponin T (hs-TnT) is a critical biomarker in diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, CKD individuals usually have elevated hs-TnT even in the absence of AMI. Our study aimed to explore the optimal cutoff-value of hs-TnT and further to improve diagnostic accuracy of AMI in CKD patients. Clinical data of 489 patients were collected from the maintained database between September 2010 and June 2014. CKD patients with AMI were assigned to CKD+AMI group and… CONTINUE READING
