ABSTRACT

Background: Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in India because of the rapid urbanization and economic growth, so timely recognition of risk factors and proper treatment is necessary. This study evaluates the risk factors and determines the treatment pattern in the acute coronary syndrome patients. Methodology: The prospective observational study was conducted in Vijaya hospital for 6 months period from April 2018 to September 2018 in patients who were diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome. Demographic details, co-morbities, clinical, laboratory findings as well as the prescription details of the patients was analyzed to find out the various risk factors and the prescription pattern among ACS patients. Patient risk stratification was done by using GRACE Score. To find out the association between the risk factors with gender and age, Chi-square test was done and p<0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: A total of 160 patients were enrolled in the study. The most common risk factor was male gender and co morbid diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. Statistical significance was observed, when risk factor were compared with age and gender. Antiplatelets and Statins were the most prescribed drugs. Risk stratification was done using GRACE Score, in which STEMI patients had high risk of adverse outcomes. Conclusion: In ACS patients, male gender was the predominant risk factor. STEMI patients had high risk of hospital mortality. Antiplatelets and Statins were the most prescribed drugs among ACS patients.

Keywords: Acute Coronary Syndrome, GRACE Score, Risk Stratification.
