Troponin and B Type Natriuretic Peptide: Is It Time to Classify Them as Risk Enhancers?
Clinical physicians, physician-scientists, basic scientists, other healthcare professionals, and trainees require regular updates on mechanisms, novel therapeutics, and medical and surgical technologies to manage cardiovascular diseases and on cardiovascular basic, translational, and clinical science. The series aims to expand the knowledge of learners specifically with regard to the pathophysiology and physiology of cardiovascular disease, the mechanisms of cardiovascular science and clinical studies, the analysis and interpretation of results, and the integration of findings into science and clinical practice. A focus of the series will be to discuss the basic science underlying cardiovascular clinical studies and professional guidelines and thereby promote a wider dissemination of this information to achieve evidence-based patient care.
Physicians, fellows, residents, and other healthcare providers.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
- Demonstrate greater understanding of the concept of residual risk for cardiovascular disease.
- Explain the role of risk-enhancing factors in cardiovascular disease risk prediction and management.
- Recognize the potential value of troponin as a risk-enhancing factor.
