[Diagnostic value of small concentrations of troponin in patients with myocardial infarction].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

We have reviewed here studies of measurement of small concentrations of troponin in patients with myocardial infarction conducted in 2010-2011 which were most significant for the clinic. Troponin is a most specific and sensitive cardiomarker appearance of which in blood serum evidence for a necrotic process in cardiac muscle. We discuss the problem of interpretation of small troponin concentrations by clinicians as well as the states in which appearance of the cardiomarker in blood serum has noncardiac origin. We also discuss novel possibilities of application of troponin as a prognostic marker in patients with stable or unstable angina after revascularization procedures.
