M. Sarkari, Ajeet P. Singh


Background: Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major cause of death in India. This study determined the characteristics, treatment and outcomes of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) at tertiary centre in north eastern Uttar Pradesh in India.

Methods: We carried out observational study with 60-days follow-up of 80 ACS patients. Data are collected on different variables including Blood pressure, pulserate, BNP, TROP I, CKMB, patient’s demography, risk factors, laboratory values at admission and repeated as and when required.  

Results: T In our study most common presentation was chest pain, majority of patients presented after 12 hour of onset of symptoms, elevation of TROP I was higher in STEMI than NSTEMI, most common complication in NSTEMI was recurrent angina and in STEMI patients was heart failure, total 15 patients expired during study 11 during hospitalization and 4 patients within 60days of follow up, thrombolysed patients has less chances of  regional wall motion abnormality.

Conclusions: In our study elevation of TROP I was more in STEMI and there was less chances of RWMA in thrombolysed patients.
