Troponin

Adding copeptin to cardiac troponin (cTn) improved the sensitivity and negative predictive value for the diagnosis of non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) compared to cTn alone. Thus, adding copeptin to cTn might help to screen NSTEMI early upon admission to the emergency department (ED) 1).


Troponin elevation after occlusion of a ruptured intracranial aneurysm predicts the occurrence of a major adverse cardiac event within one year after ASAH 2).
