Abstract

Marginal elevations of troponin T among patients with chest pain are often considered to be insignificant. We sought to define the prognostic value of marginal troponin T elevations in patients presenting to the emergency department with suspected myocardial ischemia. Four hundred twenty-eight consecutive patients presenting to the emergency department with ongoing chest pain were evaluated, followed through their hospital course, and contacted for follow-up 4 months after discharge. Two hundred ninety-nine patients had undetectable troponin T levels (
