This panel discussion and extended question and answer session focuses upon troponin screening. Where is the latest evidence as regards this debate? Is MINS ( Myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery) the most common postoperative complication associated with death and if so why is there a transatlantic divide as regards the evidence? Is there a place for troponin screening preoperatively for risk stratification? What should one do with an asymptomatic post operative patient with raised troponin? Does MINS cause hypotension?
This is part 3 of 3 from The EBPOM 2019 TopMedTalk session which debated the issue.
