Interleukin (IL)-16, a polypeptide cytokine, plays a crucial role in the inflammatory process, acting as a chemoattractant for peripheral immune cells and has been linked to various inflammatory diseases. However, its role in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is unclear.We retrospectively analyzed serum levels of IL-16 in blood of patients with (STEMI, n = 45) and without ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI, n = 42) compared with controls with excluded coronary artery disease (n = 55)...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the prognostic value of biomarkers of myocardial injury following elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: Type 4a myocardial infarction (MI) occurs when myocardial injury is combined with either symptoms suggestive of myocardial ischaemia, new left bundle branch block, angiographic loss of patency of a major artery or imaging suggestive of new loss of myocardium. Myocardial injury is defined as a rise of > 5 x 99th upper reference limit (URL) of 14ng/L (i...

INTRODUCTION: Blood biomarkers have the potential to monitor the severity of chronic heart failure (CHF). Studies correlating repeated measurements of blood biomarkers with repeatedly assessed New York Heart Association (NYHA) class over a prolonged follow-up period, and concomitantly investigating their associations with clinical endpoints, have not yet been performed. METHODS: Between 2011-2013, 263 CHF patients were included. At inclusion and subsequently every 3 months, we measured N‑terminal pro-B-type natriuretic (NT-proBNP), high-sensitivity troponin T (Hs-TnT) and C‑reactive protein (CRP), and assessed NYHA class...

PURPOSE: This study aims to evaluate the association between high sensitivity troponins (hsTn) and mitral annular plane systolic excursion (MAPSE) in patients undergoing cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI). METHODS: Patients undergoing cMRI were prospectively enrolled. Patients with right ventricular dysfunction (< 50%) were excluded. Blood samples for measurements of hsTn and amino-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) were collected at the time of cMRI...

AIMS: To test the prognostic value of emerging biomarkers in the Reduction of Events by Darbepoetin Alfa in Heart Failure (RED-HF) trial. METHODS AND RESULTS: Circulating cardiac [N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), and high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT)], neurohumoral [mid-regional pro-adrenomedullin (MR-proADM) and copeptin], renal (cystatin C), and inflammatory [high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP)] biomarkers were measured at randomization in 1853 participants with complete data...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to determine the prognostic value of combined measures of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hsTnT) in patients with low-flow, low-gradient aortic stenosis (LF-LG AS) who had either a preserved or reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). BACKGROUND: An elevated BNP level is associated with increased risk of mortality in patients with LF-LG AS. The incremental prognostic value of hsTnT in these patients is unknown...

The left atrial appendage (LAA) represents both a predisposing source of thrombus formation and of neuro-humoral haemostasis. This study aims to evaluate changes of biomarker expression before and after successful percutaneous closure of the LAA. Patients with atrial fibrillation and contraindication for oral anticoagulant therapy were enrolled. Blood samples were taken within 24 hours before (T1) and at least 6 months (mid-term) (T2) after successful implantation of LAA occlusion devices. Blood levels of high sensitivity troponin I and T (hsTnI, hsTnT), aminoterminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and mid-regional pro-atrial natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP) were evaluated at both time points...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluates the association between high sensitivity troponin I (hsTnI) and T (hsTnT) and the morphology of coronary artery plaques detected by coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) in patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: Patients undergoing CCTA were prospectively enrolled. CCTA was indicated by a low to intermediate pretest probability for CAD during routine clinical care. Within 24 hours of CCTA examination, peripheral blood samples were taken to measure hsTnI, hsTnT, and N-terminal probrain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP)...

OBJECTIVES: While regular physical exercise has many health benefits, strenuous physical exercise may have a negative impact on cardiac function. The 'Berlin Beat of Running' study focused on feasibility and diagnostic value of continuous ECG monitoring in recreational endurance athletes during a marathon race. We hypothesised that cardiac arrhythmias and especially atrial fibrillation are frequently found in a cohort of recreational endurance athletes. The main secondary hypothesis was that pathological laboratory findings in these athletes are (in part) associated with cardiac arrhythmias...

High-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT) is a marker of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and in type 2 diabetes also a marker of renal events, but has not been evaluated in type 1 diabetics. We therefore reviewed a type 1 diabetes cohort of 442 without and 458 with diabetic nephropathy. Baseline samples were analyzed for hsTnT levels. Cox regression analyses assessed predictive value in relation to the development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in 99 patients, all-cause mortality in 178, and CVD events in 134 after up to 12 years of follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Symptoms of acute coronary syndrome account for a large proportion of emergency department (ED) visits and hospitalizations. High-sensitivity troponin can rapidly rule out or rule in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) within a short time of ED arrival. We sought to validate test characteristics and classification performance of 2-hour high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT) algorithms for the rapid diagnosis of AMI. METHODS: We included consecutive patients from 4 academic EDs with suspected cardiac chest pain who had hsTnT assays performed 2 hours apart (± 30 minutes) as part of routine care...

BACKGROUND: Left atrial function (LAF) plays an interactive role between pulmonary and systemic circulation. Cardiac biomarkers, such as amino-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and troponins, might reflect cardiac function. This study aims to evaluate the association between high sensitivity troponins (hsTn) and LAF in patients undergoing cMRI. METHODS: Patients undergoing cMRI were enrolled prospectively. Patients with right ventricular dysfunction (< 50%) were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Since the introduction of high-sensitivity troponin assays a greater proportion of atrial fibrillation (AF) patients present with dynamic troponin elevations. We hypothesize that significant coronary artery disease (CAD) causes relative ischemia in the setting of a rapid heart rate resulting in dynamic troponin elevation. The aim of this study was to examine if patients without known CAD who present with AF, tachycardia and dynamic high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT) change have an increased risk of cardiac events...

BACKGROUND: Fabry disease is a X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by deficient activity of α -galactosidase A which leads to progressive intracellular accumulation of globotriaosylceramide in tissues and organs including heart, kidney, vascular endothelium, the nervous system, the eyes and the skin. Cardiac involvement is common, leads to fatal complications and is mainly responsible for reduced life expectancy in Fabry disease. The exact staging of disease progression and timely initiation of treatment is essential in Fabry disease...

BACKGROUND: Acute heart failure (AHF) is a common presentation in the Emergency Department (ED), and most patients are admitted to the hospital. Identification of patients with AHF who have a low risk of adverse events and are suitable for discharge from the ED is difficult, and an objective tool would be useful. METHODS: The highly sensitive Troponin T Rules Out Acute Cardiac Insufficiency Trial (TACIT) will enroll ED patients being treated for AHF. Patients will undergo standard ED evaluation and treatment...

BACKGROUND: Most patients with chest pain are discharged from the emergency department (ED) with the diagnosis "unspecified chest pain." It is unknown if evaluation with a high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT) assay affects prognosis in this large population. OBJECTIVES: The aim was to investigate whether the introduction of an hsTnT assay is associated with reduced incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) and cardiovascular (CV) risk profile in patients with chest pain discharged from the ED...
