Patient flow. In the Biomarkers in Cardiology (BIC)-8 main trial, 902 patients were enrolled. Of these, 20 patients did not have high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT) or copeptin values available at admission. Thus, the study population of this BIC-8 substudy consists of 882 patients with complete biomarker results at admission. Patients were divided by their biomarker test. Relative and absolute frequencies are shown in the respective boxes.

Prognostic Value of Undetectable hs Troponin T in Suspected Acute Coronary Syndrome

  Background The search for improved strategies for safe and early discharge of patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome in emergency departments is ongoing. This Biomarkers in Cardiology (BIC)-8 biomarker substudy evaluated the usefulness of high-sensitivity troponin T (hsTnT) below or above the limit of detection (LoD) in low-to-intermediate-risk patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome […]
