Background and aims: Myocardial injury defined by elevation of cardiac troponins (cTn) in the course of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has been reported, though not fully characterized yet. Using the Turkish nationwide centralized COVID-19 database, we sought to determine whether cTn measured within 24 h of admission may help identify 30-day all-cause mortality in hospitalized patients.
