Figure 3. From: Long-Term Outcomes of Hospitalized Patients with a Non-Acute Coronary Syndrome Diagnosis and an Elevated Cardiac Troponin Level.

The primary diagnoses based on the ICD-9 codes are shown for all 13,923 hospitalized patients with an elevated troponin level and a Non-ACS condition. The most common discharge diagnosis involved the cardiovascular system.

Figure 2. From: Long-Term Outcomes of Hospitalized Patients with a Non-Acute Coronary Syndrome Diagnosis and an Elevated Cardiac Troponin Level.

The in-hospital and 1-year post-hospital discharge mortality rates were determined for the 100,433 hospitalized patients who had a troponin level drawn during hospitalization in 2006. Outcomes are displayed according to the ICD-9 diagnosis of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or Non-ACS condition and whether the troponin (cTn) level was negative or positive, based on the upper reference limit of the specific assay.

Figure 1. From: Long-Term Outcomes of Hospitalized Patients with a Non-Acute Coronary Syndrome Diagnosis and an Elevated Cardiac Troponin Level.

The study cohort was obtained from all admissions to VA Medical Centers in 2006 who had a troponin assay obtained during the reference hospitalization. Those patients with a low expectation of long-term survival, based on either a prolonged hospitalization or transfer to hospice care, were censored from additional analyses. A comparative analysis of the long-term outcomes were determined according to the diagnosis of either an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or Non-ACS condition in those patients with an elevated troponin level who were discharged from the hospital.
