Abstract Prior studies have suggested a gradation in clinical risk with increasing elevations of cardiac troponins in patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACS). We hypothesised that patients with cardiac troponin-T (cTnT) between 0.01-0.1 μg/L might
be perceived as a low-risk group and consequently receive less active medical treatment.
