Cardiac myosin-binding protein C: how a novel biomarker could transform chest pain triage

Abstract

Chest pain is a common symptom – according to recent literature, it is responsible for at least 6% of all presentations to emergency departments – however, only about 10% of these patients have a final diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Chest pain triage is fraught with difficulties as physicians are increasingly caught at the interplay of sensitivity and specificity.
