High-Sensitivity Troponin T and Mortality After Elective PCI
What is the prognostic value of post-procedural high-sensitivity troponin T (hs-TnT) following elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)?

Methods:
This study included 5,626 patients undergoing elective PCI who had baseline and peak post-procedural hs-TnT measurements available. The primary outcome was 3-year mortality (with risk estimates calculated per standard deviation increase of the log hs-TnT scale).

Results:
Patients were divided into four groups: with nonelevated baseline and post-procedural hs-TnT (hs-TnT ?0.014 ?g/L; 742 patients); with nonelevated baseline, but elevated post-procedural hs-TnT (peak post-procedural hs-TnT >0.014 ?g/L; 2,721 patients); with elevated baseline hs-TnT (hs-TnT >0.014 ?g/L)......
