Troponin post noncardiac surgery and 30-day mortality

15133 patients   (age 45 years or older; 51.5% female) undergoing noncardiac surgery were enrolled in prospective VISION study (August 2007 to January 2011) were analysed (see reference below). The same troponin T assay was used for all patients. The relationship between troponin T level is graphically presented below. The vertical axis is logarithmic. The tooltips are absolute numbers (percentage of total population). The red labels above the bars are the percentage of patients  in each group dying (30 day mortality).
