Is your tropinine higher with heart failure or myocarditis? So when your tropinine is normal does this almost exclude one of those?

Does myocarditis always left some scars in one's heart? It is possible to live normal, sporty, health and long life with scarred hearth?

Not always scars: a cardiac MRI can tell you how much of the heart (if any) has permanent damage/scarring - this can guide prognosis (what we can predict about your future). if there is not much damage often one can recover to normal activity and longevity. ...Read more
