OBJECTIVE: The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 0/1 hour algorithm has been primarily validated in Europe, America and Australasia with less knowledge of its performance outside of these settings. We aim to evaluate the performance of the ESC 0/1 hour algorithm across different contexts. METHODS: We searched PubMed, Embase, Scopus, Web of Science and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials for relevant studies published between 1 January 2008 and 31 May 2019. The primary outcome was index myocardial infarction and the secondary outcome was major adverse cardiac event or mortality. A bivariate random-effects meta-analysis was used to derive the pooled estimate of each outcome. RESULTS: A total of 11 014 patients from 10 cohorts were analysed for the primary outcome. The algorithm based on high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn)T (Roche), hs-cTnI (Abbott) and hs-cTnI (Siemens) had pooled sensitivity of 98.4% (95% CI=95.1% to 99.5%), 98.1% (95% CI=94.6% to 99.3%) and 98.7% (95% CI=97.3% to 99.3%), respectively. The algorithm based on hs-cTnT (Roche) and hs-cTnI (Siemens) had pooled specificity of 91.2% (95% CI=86.0% to 94.6%) and 95.9% (95% CI=94.1% to 97.2%), respectively. Among patients in the rule-out category, the pooled mortality rate at 30 days and at 1 year was 0.1% (95% CI=0.0% to 0.4%) and 0.8% (95% CI=0.5% to 1.2%), respectively. Among patients in the observation zone, the pooled mortality rate was 0.7% (95% CI=0.3% to 1.2%) at 30 days but increased to 8.1% (95% CI=6.1% to 10.4%) at 1 year, comparable to the mortality rate in the rule-in group. CONCLUSION: The ESC 0/1 hour algorithm has high diagnostic accuracy but may not be sufficiently safe if the 1% miss-rate for myocardial infarction is desired.

OBJECTIVES: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity. Serial troponin tests have been endorsed as essential diagnostic steps to rule out/-in acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and hs-cTn assays have shown promise in enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of AMI diagnosis in the emergency department (ED). METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis of diagnostic test accuracy studies were conducted to compare the diagnostic performance of various accelerated diagnostic algorithms of hs-cTn assays for patients with symptoms of AMI. Random-effects bivariate meta-analysis was conducted to estimate the summary sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratios, and area under receiver operating characteristic curve. RESULTS: In the systematic review consisting of 56 studies and 67,945 patients, both hs-cTnT and hs-cTnI-based 0-, 1-, 2- and 0-1 h algorithms showed a pooled sensitivity >90%. The hs-cTnI-based algorithm showed a pooled specificity >80%. The hs-cTnT-based algorithms had a specificity of 68% for the 0-h algorithm and of around 80% for the 1-, 2-, and 0-1 h algorithms. The heterogeneities of all diagnostic algorithms were mild (I2 < 50%). CONCLUSION: Both hs-cTnI- and hs-cTnT-based accelerated diagnostic algorithms have high sensitivities but moderate specificities for early diagnosis of AMI. Overall, hs-cTnI-based algorithms have slightly higher specificities in early diagnosis of AMI. For patients presenting ED with typical symptoms, the use of hs-cTnT or hs-cTnI assays at the 99th percentile may help identify patients with low risk for AMI and promote early discharge from the ED.
