Abstract:

Cardiac biomarkers are of great importance in the timely, accurate diagnosis and management of acute coronary syndrome as well as the prognosis. Diagnosis in the golden period is of utmost importance to institute therapy at the earliest and possibly reverse the myocardial damage. Cardiac biomarkers are also a powerful tool for triaging. The use of a large number of cardiovascular biomarkers, meant to complement the use of the electrocardiogram, echocardiography cardiac imaging, and clinical symptom assessment, has become a routine in clinical diagnosis, differential diagnosis, risk stratification, and prognosis and guides the management of patients with suspected cardiovascular diseases. There is a broad consensus that cardiac Troponin and natriuretic peptides are the preferred biomarkers in clinical practice for the diagnosis of the acute coronary syndrome and heart failure, respectively, while the roles and possible clinical applications of several other potential biomarkers are still under study.
