1Published data: Of the enrollees into the registry between 2013 and 2018, 1072 patients were analysed. The incidence of ACS was 59.1 people per 100, 000 hospitalised adults per year with male dominance. ACS peaked 10 years earlier in men than women who were 10 years younger than Caucasians and predominantly from urban setting. Most patients presented outside the reperfusion window. The comparatively low incidence of ACS provides opportunity for the development of preventive strategies, capacity for reperfusion and local context-based management guideline.
