Background: Early diagnosis of AMI • Critical for timely initiation of evidence based therapies, but still an unmet need in many patients • Delayed “rule-in” morbidity + mortality • Delayed “rule-out” time in ED + costs patient anxiety • 3 key tools: History incl. chest pain characteristics • ECG • cTn

Methods II • TRAPID-AMI ≈ APACE • Prospective diagnostic study in the ED • Inclusion: acute chest pain suggestive of AMI • onset < 6h (<12h in APACE) • written informed consent • First blood draw <45min since presentation • Exclusion: terminal kidney failure on dialysis • Trauma • DC or defibrillation prior to inclusion • CABG <1month or AMI <3 weeks • Blinded measurement of hs-cTnT at 0h+1h
Methods III • Final diagnosis: central adjudication by two independent cardiologists according to the universial definition of MI using all information including serial cTnI-ultra (hs-cTnT in APACE) • Primary endpoint: NPV for AMI • Secondary endpoints: PPV for AMI, …. • Follow-up: 30d mortality • Sample size calculation: based on APACE • 761 patients in rule-out zone, 1233 patients overall
Results 95% CI 98.2-99.7% 95% CI 70.4-83.0%
Limitations • ED patients vs general practitioner (pre-test probability) • Observational diagnostic study. Physicians were blinded to the investigational hs-cTnT results and patients were not managed based on these results. • May underestimate the true NPV of the hs-cTnT 1h-algo due to enrichment with early presenters • Performance in patients on dialysis is unknown
Conclusions • The hs-cTnT 1h-algorithm performs well for early rule-out as well as rule-in of AMI. • Effectiveness (% rule-out/in) and safety (NPV & 30d-mortality in rule-out, PPV in rule-in ≈ APACE. • Clinical implication: Used in conjunction with all other clinical information including ECG, the hs-cTnT 1h-algorithm will be a safe and effective approach to substantially reduce time to diagnosis in ≈75% of acute chest pain patients.
