https://doi.org/10.1182/blood-2018-06-858951
Blood Lilleness B, Ruberg FL et. al.

Oct 19th, 2018 - Immunoglobulin light chain amyloidosis (AL amyloidosis) is caused by misfolded light chains that form soluble toxic aggregates that deposit in tissues and organs, leading to organ dysfunction. The leading determinant of survival is cardiac involve...

Cardiac Troponins in Low-Risk Pulmonary Embolism Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta...
https://doi.org/10.12788/jhm.2961
Journal of Hospital Medicine; Darwish OS, Mahayni A et. al.

Apr 25th, 2018 - Patients with low-risk pulmonary embolism (PE) should be considered as per current scoring systems for ambulatory treatment. However, there is uncertainty whether patients with low scores and positive troponins should require hospitalization. We s...

Missed myocardial infarctions in ED patients prospectively categorized as low risk by e...
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ajem.2017.01.003
The American Journal of Emergency Medicine; Singer AJ, Than MP et. al.

Jan 21st, 2017 - Few studies have prospectively compared multiple cardiac risk prediction scores. We compared the rate of missed acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in chest pain patients prospectively categorized as low risk by unstructured clinical impression, and...

The meaning of elevated troponin I levels: not always acute coronary syndromes.
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ajem.2015.09.037
The American Journal of Emergency Medicine; Harvell B, Henrie N et. al.

Oct 28th, 2015 - Troponin elevation can be caused by etiologies other than acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Our hypothesis was that elevated troponins occur more frequently in non-ACS cases but that ACS cases (type 1 ST-elevation myocardial infarction [STEMI] and t...

Platelet activation is associated with myocardial infarction in patients with pneumonia.
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jacc.2014.07.985
Journal of the American College of Cardiology; Cangemi R, Casciaro M et. al.

Dec 2nd, 2014 - Troponins may be elevated in patients with pneumonia, but associations with myocardial infarction (MI) and with platelet activation are still undefined. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between troponin elevation and in vi...

COVID-19: ACC Advises Caution on Use of Troponin, Natriuretic Peptide Tests
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/927205

Mar 18th, 2020 - Two widely assayed cardiac biomarkers are often elevated in patients with coronavirus infection (COVID-19), for reasons that are still poorly understood, but tests for them shouldn't be ordered except for standard clinical reasons. That means assa...

Heart Failure Risk Prediction in the Community Sharpened by hs-Troponins
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/926726

Mar 11th, 2020 - A study of more than 48,000 people without a history of stroke, myocardial infarction (MI), or heart failure (HF) has bolstered and surpassed previous evidence that adding cardiac biomarkers to standard risk factors can sharpen long-term predictio...

Calculator Aims to Take Full Advantage of hs-Tn in Suspected MI
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/915425

Jul 8th, 2019 - A novel risk-assessment tool uses troponin levels at serial high-sensitivity (hs-troponin) assays to rule in or rule out myocardial infarction (MI) in the emergency department (ED) based on changing levels of the biomarker, without relying on fixe...

And Now, a Chest Pain Triage Algorithm With Serial hs-Troponin
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/myocardialinfarction/80721

Jun 26th, 2019 - Pooling the literature on high-sensitivity (hs) troponins yielded a comprehensive and flexible algorithm to triage patients presenting to the emergency department with suspected MI, the COMPASS-MI researchers reported. For example, MI is ruled out...

When EHRs (and Doctors) Don't Communicate With Each Other
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/901065

Aug 22nd, 2018 - It is a pervasive obstacle to the delivery of optimal medical care: unanswered requests for medical records. There is no accountability even though these requests impact continuity of care, drive up the cost of hospitalization, and affect patient ...
