The role of biomarkers in the diagnosis and risk stratification of acute coronary syndrome.

Future Science OA 2018 January
Coronary artery disease is a growing concern. Although traditional biomarkers, such as troponins and creatine kinase, play a central role in the diagnosis, risk stratification and management of coronary artery disease, they are unable to detect myocardial ischemia in the absence of necrosis. Therefore, early detection of ischemia in patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome still remains a burning question. High-sensitivity troponin is evolving as a reliable biomarker in this regard and has been absorbed into clinical practice. Biomarkers are currently the focus of immense interest as it not only helps with diagnosis and management but also helps to understand the pathophysiology of the disease process. In addition, analysis using a multimarker strategy has also proven to be a very useful tool in risk stratification. This review will focus on the biomarkers and its application in the diagnosis and risk stratification of acute coronary syndrome.
