Background: Soluble fibrin monomer complex (SFMC) was shown to be raised in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). It provides information regarding fibrin formation prior to thrombus formation and the development of myocardial cell damage in thrombosis-mediated type 1 MI. The introduction of high sensitivity cardiac troponin assays has increased the diagnostic sensitivity (SE) for diagnosis of MI, but the diagnostic specificity (SP) was compromised. Such a defect was partially… CONTINUE READING
