Predictive role of high sensitivity troponin T within four hours from presentation of acute coronary syndrome in elderly patients.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Previous studies indicate that the introduction of high-sensitivity troponin T (HsTnT) as a diagnostic tool for chest pain patients in the emergency department (ED) creates a high rate of false-positive tests. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate if the diagnostic performance of HsTnT for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) up to 3-4 h after presentation in elderly patients can be improved.
