The HEART score is a clinical decision support tool for physicians to stratify the risk of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients presenting with chest pain at the emergency department (ED). The score includes 5 elements, including troponin level. Our aim was to compare safety and efficiency of the HEART scores calculated by using the first representative troponin (i.e. based on time since symptom onset) compared to the original HEART score, where calculation was based on the first available troponin measurement, irrespective of duration of symptoms.

Name: Critical pathways in cardiology
Serial conventional cardiac troponin (cTn) measurements 6-9 hours apart are recommended for non-ST-elevation MI (NSTEMI) diagnosis. We sought to develop a pathway with 3-hour changes for major adverse...
To further elucidate the nature of the association between N-terminal pro-B type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-TnT), C-reactive protein (CRP), and clinical o...
An early invasive strategy in patients who have acute coronary syndrome without ST-elevation (NSTE-ACS) can improve clinical outcome in high-risk subgroups. According to the current guidelines of the ...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia, and its prevalence rate is expected to be doubled over the next decades. Despite the wide use of biomarkers in the management of diffe...
Although cardiac troponin has been well established as diagnostic and prognostic makers for acute coronary heart disease, the prognostic value of elevated cardiac troponin in patients with intracerebr...
Validation of modified HEART score as a rule-out criterion for MACE at 6 weeks: a 2 centre prospective observational cohort with a direct comparison to TIMI, GRACE and high sensitive tropo...
The current diagnostic criteria for a heart attack require evaluation of a patient's symptoms and ECG but importantly a blood test called troponin. With advancing technology this test has ...
Background Troponin are proteins found in the cardiomyocyte and are a cornerstone in the diagnoses of acute myocardial infarction. Troponin is released to the bloodstream as a result of an...
Approximately 8-10 million patients complaining of chest pain present to an Emergency Department (ED) annually in the United States. These patients are a challenge to healthcare providers,...
The main purpose of this study is to compare myocardial injury of patients undergoing congenital cardiac defects repair surgery (RACHS Risk Score one, two or three) under total intravenous...
One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It is a cardiac-specific protein that binds to TROPOMYOSIN. It is released from damaged or injured heart muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Defects in the gene encoding troponin T result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.

Method of isolation and maintenance of a working heart for various cardiac measurements. The model allows for the separation of cardiac and systemic variables in the denervated heart.
One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It inhibits F-actin-myosin interactions.
