Abstract

To the Editor, We read with great interest Fahim et al.’s paper on biological variation of high-sensitivity troponin in stable haemodialysis patients. In keeping with other studies, the authors demonstrated a low index of individuality in stable haemodialysis patients and conclude that troponin results are best interpreted using serial measurements in this group of patients. However, a number of factors that may impact the clinical care of haemodialysis patients who have a high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality were not addressed.
