Abstract
Cardiac troponin is an integral biomarker in the evaluation and management of patients with acute coronary syndrome. Troponin is also established as a valuable prognostic marker in patients with acute or chronic heart failure (HF). As the sensitivity of troponin assays transition to high sensitive troponin, more patients with HF will have detectable troponin. In this review, the authors discuss the current literature on the value of troponin in the management of patients with HF. Furthermore, the authors highlight the potential for future strategies to use troponin as a potential target for therapy in patients with HF.
