BACKGROUND: Many studies have assessed the biological variation (BV) of cardiac-specific troponins (cTn), reporting widely varying within-subject BV (CVI) estimates. The aim of this study was to provide metaanalysis-derived BV estimates for troponin I (cTnI) and troponin T (cTnT) for different sampling intervals and states of health.
