(a) The Kaplan-Meier estimates of the overall survival probability of patients stratified by tertiles of cTnT concentrations. (b) The Kaplan-Meier estimates of the cumulative hazard rate for all-cause mortality stratified by the cTnT concentration with a cutoff of 0.042 ng/dL (the lower limit of the upper tertile) with a hazard ratio (HR) of 2.85 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.44–5.62; ) for cTnT > 0.042.
