IMPLICATIONS OF NEW ASSAY

Implementation of a Sensitive Troponin I Assay and Risk of Recurrent Myocardial Infarction and Death in Patients With Suspected Acute Coronary Syndrome, March 23/30, 2011, Mills et al. 305 (12): 1210 — JAMA

Interesting paper in JAMA this week. Surely this strategy of using high sensitivity troponin assays will lead to a larger number of patients being admitted with NSTEMI and an increase in revascularisation procedures.
