New clinical documents on SIHD and Troponin

11/19/2012

On Nov. 19, the ACC Foundation, in partnership with several other medical specialty societies, released comprehensive guidelines for Stable Ischemic Heart Disease. The guidelines present an extensive assessment of the evidence and key issues involved in the diagnosis, risk assessment, treatment and follow up of known or suspected SIHD and recommend a patient-centered approach to the diagnosis and management of SIHD. In addition, last week the ACCF released the first Expert Consensus Document on Practical Clinical Considerations in the Interpretation of Troponin Elevations. Developed in collaboration with other leading professional societies, it is the first comprehensive consensus document outlining clinical considerations for ordering and interpreting tests for troponin. Visit CardioSource.org for more information about each of the new documents.
