Limitations

The findings of this study are limited by the relatively small sample size. Also, the patients studied had significant comorbidity, both cardiac and non-cardiac, which may have contributed to the finding of elevated troponin. However, HF patients typically have complex medical problems, and the patients in this study had similar levels of arrhythmia and valvular disease to the general HF population.
