Insufficient sensitivity when using undetectable baseline high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT<5ng/L) to rule out myocardial infarction in patients with short time from symptom onset

Event: ESC Congress 2018

Topic: Biomarkers

Session: Biomarkers in acute coronary syndromes


A rapid rule-out strategy based on high sensitive troponin and HEART score implemented in clinical routine is safe and reduces admission to hospital

Event: ESC Congress 2017

Topic: Infarction acute phase non STEMI

Session: Chest pain in the emergency department: the "Biomarkers-Versus-Imaging-Dilemma"


Experiences of a one-hour troponin algorithm at the emergency department - dynamic changes are uncommon at initial low levels but relate to rate of admission and myocardial infarction among admitted.

Event: ESC Congress 2016

Topic: Acute cardiac care in the emergency department

Session: Biomarkers and prognostication in acute cardiovascular care
