Patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes still represent a high risk population in whom early risk assessment is of essential importance to guide therapy. Besides clinical symptoms and ECG criteria cardiac biomarkers have emerged as critical tools for risk stratification. Whereas troponins remain the most validated biomarkers used in clinical practice today, current research aims to identify novel markers which are capable of indentifying patients at risk at an earlier stage of the disease, that ist prior to myocardial damage.
