  • Diagnostic value of serial measurement of cardiac markers in patients with chest pain : limited value of adding myoglobin to troponin I for exclusion of myocardial infarction
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: American Heart Journal. - : Elsevier BV. - 0002-8703 .- 1097-6744. ; 148:4, s. 574-581
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND:Despite improved laboratory assays for cardiac markers and a revised standard for definition of myocardial infarction (AMI), early detection of coronary ischemia in unselected patients with chest pain remains a difficult challenge.METHODS:Rapid measurements of troponin I (TnI), creatine kinase MB (CK-MB), and myoglobin were performed in 197 consecutive patients with chest pain and a nondiagnostic electrocardiogram for AMI. The early diagnostic performances of these markers and different multimarker strategies were evaluated and compared. Diagnosis of AMI was based on European Society of Cardiology/American College of Cardiology criteria.RESULTS:At a given specificity of 95%, TnI yielded the highest sensitivity of all markers at all time points. A TnI cutoff corresponding to the 10% coefficient of variation (0.1 microg/L) demonstrated a cumulative sensitivity of 93% with a corresponding specificity of 81% at 2 hours. The sensitivity was considerably higher compared to CK-MB and myoglobin, even considering patients with a short delay until admission. Using the 99th percentile of TnI results as a cutoff (0.07 microg/L) produced a cumulative sensitivity of 98% at 2 hours, but its usefulness was limited due to low specificities. Multimarker strategies including TnI and/or myoglobin did not provide a superior overall diagnostic performance compared to TnI using the 0.1 microg/L cutoff.CONCLUSION:A TnI cutoff corresponding to the 10% coefficient of variation was most appropriate for early diagnosis of AMI. A lower TnI cutoff may be useful for very early exclusion of AMI. CK-MB and in particular myoglobin did not offer additional diagnostic value.

  • Cardiac troponin I levels in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome : the importance of gender
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: American Heart Journal. - : Elsevier BV. - 0002-8703 .- 1097-6744. ; 168:3, s. 317-324.e1

    • BACKGROUND: Measurement of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin levels is increasingly used in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). However, studies investigating the distribution and prognostic implications of high-sensitivity troponin levels in men and women separately are currently lacking.METHODS: Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) levels were determined using a high-sensitivity assay (Abbott Laboratories, Abbott Park, IL) in 1,677 male and 1,073 female NSTE-ACS patients participating in the GUSTO IV study. The prognostic associations of cTnI to outcome (30-day composite end point of recurrent myocardial infarction and 1-year mortality) were assessed in multivariable models, using cTnI both as a continuous variable and dichotomized at different sets of single and gender-specific 99th percentiles.RESULTS: Median cTnI levels were 947 and 175 ng/L in men and women, respectively (P < .001). The adjusted odds ratios for cTnI (ln) were similar in men and women. The adjusted odds ratios for cTnI above the tested 99th percentiles levels in contrast were twice as high in women compared with men. This was a consequence of differences in the cTnI distribution and risk gradients across cTnI levels, in particular due to lower event rates in women without cTnI elevation. Gender-specific cutoffs did not improve risk prediction.CONCLUSIONS: Despite overall lower levels, cTnI above the tested 99th percentiles exhibited stronger prognostic information in women with NSTE-ACS compared with men. This likely reflects differences in the pathophysiology and the clinical presentation in NSTE-ACS. Our data, thus, emphasize that women with symptoms of unstable coronary artery disease encompass a broader risk panorama than men.

  • High-sensitive cardiac troponin T and its relations to cardiovascular risk factors, morbidity, and mortality in elderly men
  • 2013

    • Background Cardiac troponin is emerging as risk indicator in community-dwelling populations. In this study, we investigated the associations of cardiac troponin T (cTnT) to cardiovascular (CV) disease and outcome in elderly men. Methods Cardiac troponin T was measured using a high-sensitive assay in 940 men aged 71 years participating in the Uppsala Longitudinal Study of Adult Men. We assessed both the cross-sectional associations of cTnT to CV risk factors and morbidities including cancer and the longitudinal associations to outcomes over 10 years of follow-up. Results Cardiac troponin T levels were measurable in 872 subjects (92.8%). In the cross-sectional analyses, cTnT was associated to CV risk factors (diabetes, smoking, and obesity), renal dysfunction, CV disease including atrial fibrillation and coronary artery disease, and biomarkers of inflammation and left ventricular dysfunction. In the longitudinal analyses, cTnT independently predicted total mortality and CV events including stroke. The standardized adjusted hazard ratio regarding the composite CV end point was 1.5 (95% CI 1.3-1.8), P < .001, for men with prevalent CV disease and 1.2 (95% CI 1.0-1.4), P = .02, for men without. Cardiac troponin T improved discrimination metrics for all outcomes in the total population. This was mainly driven by the prognostic value of cTnT in subjects with prevalent CV disease. Conclusions In community-dwelling men, cTnT levels are associated to CV risk factors and morbidities and predict both fatal and nonfatal CV events. The relations to outcome are mainly seen in men with prevalent CV disease indicating that the prognostic value of cTnT in subjects free from CV disease is limited.

  • High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T, left ventricular function, and outcome in non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome

    • Background Cardiac troponin (cTn) levels reflect infarct size and depressed left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) in patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS). However, there is very limited information on whether cTn measured with a high-sensitivity (hs) assay would provide incremental prognostic information to the LVEF in NSTE-ACS patients. Methods This was a registry-based study (SWEDEHEART registry) investigating 20,652 NSTE-ACS patients with available information on hs-cTnT (highest level recorded during the hospitalization) and the LVEF estimated using echocardiography. All patients had been followed for 1 year. Results Hs-cTnT levels independently predicted major cardiovascular events (MACE) in cohorts with normal, slightly depressed, moderately depressed, and severely depressed LVEF. The adjusted hazard ratios in these cohorts were 1.18 (95% CI 1.13-1.23), 1.12 (95% CI 1.06-1.18), 1.12 (95% CI 1.06-1.19), and 1.21 (95% CI 1.13-1.30), respectively. Hs-cTnT levels were particularly predictive for cardiovascular mortality and readmission for heart failure. Excluding patients with previous cardiac disease did not affect the overall interrelations of hs-cTnT and LVEF with MACE. Conclusions Hs-cTnT levels provide incremental prognostic value independent of the LVEF in patients with NSTE-ACS. Hs-cTnT is particularly predictive for MACE in patients with severely depressed LVEF but also in those with a normal LVEF. Accordingly, a normal LVEF should not be used as an argument not to target patients to thorough workup.

  • Improving long-term risk prediction in patients with acute chest pain : The Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score is enhanced by selected nonnecrosis biomarkers
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: American Heart Journal. - : Elsevier BV. - 0002-8703 .- 1097-6744. ; 160:1, s. 88-94

    • Background The Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score is widely recommended for risk assessment in patients with acute coronary syndrome. However, there is limited knowledge regarding the utility of this score for long-term risk prediction in unselected patients with acute chest pain and whether it might be improved by the integration of nonnecrosis biomarkers. Methods We calculated the GRACE risk score in 453 chest pain patients and assessed its value for risk assessment together with the additive prognostic information obtained from N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide, C-reactive protein, growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15), and cystatin C. Results After a median follow-up of 5.8 years, 92 patients (20.7%) had died. The GRACE risk score was significantly higher in patients who died (median 146 vs 93, P < .001) and provided a c-statistic regarding mortality of 0.78. A significant increase of the c-statistic was achieved only after addition of GDF-15 (c-statistic 0.81, P = .003) and, to a minor extent, after addition of cystatin C (c-statistic 0.81, P = .035). Assessment of the integrated discriminative improvement yielded similar results. N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide had only limited incremental prognostic value, and C-reactive protein was not predictive for outcome. Conclusion The GRACE risk score allows for the prediction of mortality in chest pain patients even after almost 6 years of follow-up. However, its predictive value could be further enhanced by the addition of selected nonnecrosis biomarkers, in particular GDF-15 or cystatin C. (Am Heart J 2010; 160: 88-94.)

  • Pathophysiologic mechanisms of persistent cardiac troponin I elevation in stabilized patients after an episode of acute coronary syndrome
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: American Heart Journal. - : Elsevier BV. - 0002-8703 .- 1097-6744. ; 156:3, s. 588-594
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: Recently, a high prevalence of small persistent cardiac troponin I (cTnI) elevations has been reported in patients who had been stabilized after a recent episode of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We now have studied the associations of persistently elevated cTnI levels to cardiac performance, inflammation, coagulation, coronary status, and treatment strategy in these patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: Cardiac troponin I was determined at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months after randomization in 898 stabilized ACS patients from the FRagmin and Fast Revascularization during InStability in Coronary artery disease (FRISC) II trial and using the high-sensitive Access AccuTnI assay (Beckman Coulter, Fullerton, CA). All patients were followed up for at least 5 years. Persistent cTnI elevation >0.01 microg/L at the 3 measurement instances was detected in 233 patients (26%). N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) at 6 months (OR 2.5, 95% CI 2.0-3.1), male sex (OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.4-3.7), and randomization to an early invasive strategy (OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.2-2.7) independently predicted persistently elevated cTnI levels. Persistently cTnI-positive patients in the invasive cohort had significantly lower NT-proBNP levels compared to noninvasively treated patients, indicating that the mechanisms causing cTnI elevation in this group may be prognostically less harmful. No independent associations were found for markers of inflammation or coagulation. CONCLUSION: Persistent cTnI elevation occurs frequently late after an ACS. The NT-proBNP level at 6 months was the strongest predictor for elevated cTnI levels that thus appear to be predominantly related to impaired left ventricular function.

  • ST2 and mortality in non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: American Heart Journal. - : Elsevier BV. - 0002-8703 .- 1097-6744. ; 159:5, s. 788-794

    • BACKGROUND: ST2 is a member of the interleukin-1 receptor family that is up-regulated in conditions associated with increased myocardial strain. ST2 has been shown to be independently predictive of adverse outcome in heart failure and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, but its prognostic value in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) has not been established. METHODS: We measured ST2 at randomization and after 24, 48, and 72 hours in 403 NSTE-ACS patients from the GUSTO IV study, and studied its kinetics and its associations to clinical baseline factors and 1-year mortality. RESULTS: Median ST2 levels decreased from 28.4 U/mL at randomization to 21.8 U/mL at 72 hours (P < .001). Peak levels were noted 6 to 17 hours after symptom onset. Randomization ST2 levels were independently associated to N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide but otherwise exhibited only weak relations to cardiovascular risk factors and comorbidities, and biomarkers of myocardial necrosis or inflammation. ST2 was related to 1-year mortality independently of clinical risk indicators (odds ratio 2.3 [95% CI 1.1-4.6], P = .03) but lost its predictive value after additional adjustment for prognostic biomarkers, in particular N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide. CONCLUSIONS: ST2 levels are elevated early in NSTE-ACS and predict 1-year mortality. Our data indicate that ST2 represents an interesting novel pathophysiologic pathway in the setting of ischemia-related myocardial dysfunction. However, future prospective evaluations in larger populations are needed before the clinical utility of ST2 can be determined.

  • Coronary angiography in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest without ST elevation on ECG-Short- and long-term survival.
  • 2018
  • Ingår i: American Heart Journal. - : Elsevier BV. - 0002-8703 .- 1097-6744. ; 200, s. 90-95

    • BACKGROUND: The potential benefit of early coronary angiography in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients without ST elevation on ECG is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between early coronary angiography and survival in these patients.METHODS: Nationwide observational study between 2008 and 2013. Included were patients admitted to hospital after witnessed OHCA, with shockable rhythm, age 18 to 80 years and unconscious. Patients with ST-elevation on ECG were excluded. Patients that underwent early CAG (within 24 hours) were compared with no early CAG (later during the hospital stay or not at all). Outcomes were survival at 30 days, 1 year, and 3 years. Multivariate analysis included pre-hospital factors, comorbidity and ECG-findings.RESULTS: In total, 799 OHCA patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria, of which 275 (34%) received early CAG versus 524 (66%) with no early CAG. In the early CAG group, the proportion of patients with an occluded coronary artery was 27% and 70% had at least one significant coronary stenosis (defined as narrowing of coronary lumen diameter of ≥50%). The 30-day survival rate was 65% in early CAG group versus 52% with no early CAG (P < .001). The adjusted OR was 1.42 (95% CI 1.00-2.02). The one-year survival rate was 62% in the early CAG group versus 48% in the no early CAG group with the adjusted hazard ratio of 1.35 (95% CI 1.04-1.77).CONCLUSION: In this population of bystander-witnessed cases of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with shockable rhythm and ECG without ST elevation, early coronary angiography may be associated with improved short and long term survival.
