Özet

Objective: The role of increased troponin level in risk stratification of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is well documented. However, relation between right ventricular (RV) myocardial performance (Tei) index and cardiac troponin-T (cTn-T) has not been well investigated. The purpose of this observational prospective study was to assess the relationship between the RV Tei index and cTn-T in patients with acute normotensive PE.
