Cardiac troponins are regarded as the most specific and sensitive of the currently available diagnostic techniques for detection of myocardial damage, and the redefined criteria used to classify acute coronary syndrome patients presenting with ischemic symptoms as myocardial infarction patients are heavily predicated on an increased concentration of these markers in blood (1 ). Troponins also are the only markers identifying high-risk coronary patients who should be treated with antithrombotic… CONTINUE READING
