creased circulating troponin concentrations in patients with stable coronary heart disease (CHD) several weeks after an acute event or CABG has not been fully evaluated. METHODS: Baseline plasma concentrations of troponin T were measured with a high-sensitivity assay (hs-cTnT) (Roche Elecsys) in a cohort of 1050 CHD pa-tients from 30 to 70 years of age. The prognostic value of hs-cTnT on a combined cardiovascular disease (CVD) end point after adjustment for covariates was determined with Cox proportional hazards modeling. RESULTS: The median hs-cTnT concentration was 10.9 ng/L (interquartile range, 5.1–18.9 ng/L). Increased hs-cTnT concentrationswere associatedwith an older age, history of hypertension and diabetes, more advance
