Abstract

Elevated troponins signify myocardial damage and raise concern for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, there are medical conditions that may cause a patient to have chronically elevated troponin levels in the absence of ACS. In our extensive review, we look at the conditions and their mechanisms that cause chronically elevated troponin levels and discuss them comprehensively. We also aim for our review to serve as a guide for physicians evaluating this complex group of patients.
