PROTECTION AMI: Cardiac troponin I levels predicted STEMI outcomes

November 25, 2014

In a new analysis, researchers reported an independent association between measurement of cardiac troponin I levels after primary PCI for STEMI and clinical outcomes and cardiac function.

Circulating levels of cardiac troponin I after STEMI have been linked to infarct size and chronic left ventricular dysfunction; however, there are fewer data on how cardiac troponin I levels affect clinical endpoints and biochemical markers of global cardiac function, according to background information in the study.
