    To the Editor: We appreciate the work by Hall?n et al. which reported a single-point measurement of cardiac troponin-I (cTnI) 24- or 48-hours after primary angioplasty for those with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) provides substantial prognostic information on the evolution of left ventricular (LV) function and the risk of LV expansion.(1) Actually, a single level of cTnI after primary angioplasty is...
