Özet

Although cardiac troponins play a central role in the diagnosis and risk stratification of patients with acute coronary syndrome and are frequently used to determine whether a patient with chest pain has had cardiac damage, a false positive value can result in unnecessary hospitalization and enrollment of potentially invasive tests. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of false positive troponin levels, especially when the results are not consistent with clinical presentation of the patient.
