Serial increased cardiac troponin T predicts mortality in asymptomatic patients treated with chronic haemodialysis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A single detectable cardiac troponin predicts mortality in patients treated with dialysis. There are limited data on changes in troponin concentration over time and the clinical implications of serial troponin measurement. METHODS Serial cardiac troponin T (cTnT) was assayed five times over 12 months in a prospective cohort study of patients… (More)
