Highly sensitive troponin t (hstnt) profile for outcome prediction after cardiac surgery

Published: 1 October 2015
Changes in cardiac mediators remain a subject of research interest. Instantly obtainable biomarkers that are performed routinely, are inexpensive and are characterized by linkages to outcome in cardiac surgery settings are optimum. Post-operative conventional cardiac troponins are linked to short- and middle-length outcomes  but highly sensitive troponin T (hsTnT) has not been extensively evaluated in the same settings.
To assess the ability of hsTnT to prognosticate outcomes in cardiac surgery.
Multivariate logistic regression for hsTnT.
Outcome prediction in cardiac surgery in terms of PMI, LOV and POAF could be enhanced by using a set level of hsTnT; this profile serves as a powerful laboratory marker to identify high-risk patients.
