  • Differentiating Between Acute Decompensated Aortic Stenosis and Myocardial Infarction



    Patients with aortic stenosis (AS) are susceptible to myocardial ischemia and often present acutely, making it challenging to differentiate between a type 1 NSTEMI and acute decompensated aortic stenosis. This study aims to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of Troponin T (TnT) (>5 fold above the upper limit of normal), ischemic ECG and angina, to predict a type 1 non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) among patients with severe AS and acute presentations.
