Objective: Several studies have investigated different cardiac biomarkers as predictors of the prognosis after percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease; nevertheless, the results of these studies are conflicting. High sensitive troponin T (Hs-TnT) measurement is a novel and sensitive method. The aim of this study was to investigate if Hs-TnT levels are a predictor of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in the first year after a successful elective PCI in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP).
