Özet

Background: Cardiac troponins are the recommended markers for the detection of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). There is a controversy regarding their decision limits. In this study, our objective was to reveal the cut-off values of high-sensitive troponin T (hsTnT) for AMI diagnosis in our population and to examine the effect of age and gender on hsTnT cut-off values.
