OBJECTIVE The present study sought to determine the incidence of increased procoagulant activity in patients with unstable angina (UAP), and to evaluate the relationship between cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and molecular markers of hemostatic activation. Method. We studied 44 patients with UAP further classified by plasma cTnT levels. All patients received an antithrombotic therapy consisting of therapeutic doses of unfractionated heparin and acetylsalicylic acid. Quantitative levels of cTnT and… CONTINUE READING
