High-sensitivity troponin T and risk of recurrent cardiovascular disease events in patients with stable coronary heart disease followed over 8-years

Wolfgang Koenig, Lutz P Breitling, Hermann Brenner & Dietrich Rothenbacher
Introduction: The clinical relevance of only slightly elevated circulating troponin levels in patients with stable coronary heart disease (CHD) several weeks after an acute event has not been fully evaluated. We aimed to assess the predictive value of a new high-sensitivity troponin T assay (hsTnT) [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
