myocardial infarction


The rising number of patients with chest pain without myocardial infarction has made accurate diagnosis important. Unnecessary invasive coronary angiographies are increasingly prevalent. These are both costly and lead to rare but serious adverse events. Recent studies suggest cardiac Troponin I is more cardiac specific than cardiac Troponin T. In this study we will investigate whether using cardiac Troponin I lead to fewer unnecessary procedures in clinical practice (i.e. invasive coronary angiography and non-invasive tests)
