Biomarkers: Troponin testing--risk stratification to stratified medicine.
Among patients with diabetes mellitus and ischaemic heart disease, high-sensitivity testing effectively identified 39.3% of patients with elevated troponin levels who were at high 5-year risk of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke. Compared with optimal medical therapy, revascularization did not reduce ischaemic events among patients with elevated troponin levels.
