ST2 is a strong predictor of cardiovascular death and risk of developing new heart failure in ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction(STEMI)&NSTE-ACS patients. In patients presenting with Acute Coronary Syndrome(ACS),those in the highest quartile(above35ng/ml)have more than 3 times higher risk of cardiovascular death and new heart failure at 30 days,than those in the lower quartiles. At one year, there is a relative risk of 2.3 for adverse outcomes.
