  1. Values are median (interquartile range. CAD = coronary artery disease, hFABP = heart fatty acid binding protein; HFnEF = heart failure with normal ejection fraction; hsTnT = high sensitive troponin T, LVEDD = left ventricular end-diastolic diameter; NT-proBNP = amino-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide. * Statistically significant (p < 0.05).
