Abstract

The baseline cardiac troponin T (cTnT) level strongly predicts short-term mortality in acute coronary syndromes, but the added value of predischarged (V day) measures to predict short-term outcome and left ventricular (LV) remodeling in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (MI) is controversial.
