Some false-negative results could depend on a very small size of the ischaemic area (so-called noncritical mass). The best time to perform an echocardiogram in patients complaining of chest pain is still controversial; it seems reasonable to perform this examination: – In patients whose chest pain is ongoing, has just resolved, or lasted more than 30 min. – In patients with typical chest pain associated with a nondiagnostic ECG investigation. – In patients whose history suggests previous AMI with chest pain and inconclusive ECG patterns.

The cardiac troponins, T and I, are encoded by different genes in cardiac muscle, slow skeletal muscle, and fast skeletal muscle; hence, these markers are more specific for myocardial injury than CK-MB. After myocardial injury, the levels of cardiac troponins rise after approximately the same amount of time as CK-MB levels (6–12 h) but remain elevated for several days [13]. Once elevated, the cardiac troponins are not useful in detecting repeated episodes of myocardial injury owing to the long elimination half-life; nevertheless, they are significantly predictive about the risk of death in the first 42 days (Fig.
