The magnitude of the concentration change that best discriminates between acute and chronic increases has not been defined yet, and it is still a matter of debate whether one should prefer relative changes, absolute changes, or the reference change value, a metric calculated from short-term or intermediate-term biological variation in cardiac troponin.
Recent publications have reported both shortand long-term reference change values (RCVs) in healthy populations for both high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-cTnI) and high-sensitivitycardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT); thus, the RCV perhaps could be the metric used for determining the optimal clinical change value (2, 3).
