ACCEL Lite: High-Sensitivity Troponin in The ED: Pearls And Pitfalls of Wide-spread Utilization
Use of the newer high-sensitivity troponins offer significant advantages, but with a number of caveats. Although the ability to accelerate the exclusion of myocardial infarction in many patients within just a few hours of ED presentation, the increased sensitivity can potentially lead to diagnostic confusion as more patients will have detectable troponin indicating myocardial injury not associated myocardial infarction.
