BACKGROUND Acute ischemic stroke patients may occasionally suffer from concomitant acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Troponin I and T are established biomarkers to detect ACS. Recently introduced high-sensitive cardiac troponin (hs-TNI and hs-TNT) assays are increasingly used to identify ACS in stroke patients even without signs or symptoms of ACS. These new test systems very often detect elevated values of hs-troponin, although clinical relevance and consequences of elevated hs-TNI values in… CONTINUE READING
