Özet

Objectives: Chest pain is one of the most common complaints among patients admitted to emergency departments. Cardiac troponins, CK-MB and myoglobin, which are used routinely in the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), are not elevated in the initial hours of ACS-precluding their usefulness in the early diagnosis. The aim of this study is to determine the efficacy of H-FABP compared to myoglobin and CK-MB in the early diagnosis of ACS.
