Usefulness of an elevated troponin-I in predicting clinical events in patients admitted with acute heart failure and acute coronary syndrome (from the RITZ-4 trial).
(Clinical Trial;Journal Article)
The relation of cardiac troponin-I (cTnI) to clinical outcomes was examined in patients with decompensated heart failure and concomitant acute coronary syndrome enrolled into the Randomized Intravenous TeZosentan 4 (RITZ-4) study. RITZ-4 was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of the endothelin receptor antagonist tezosentan in patients admitted with acute heart failure and concomitant acute coronary syndrome. One hundred ninety-two patients were enrolled in this study. Patients with baseline cTnI values were included in this analysis, and the relation between cTnI and the composite clinical primary end point of RITZ-4 was evaluated.
