Acute Coronary Syndromes
  Follow Topic   Edit Search

Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) represent a group of specific clinical conditions resulting from myocardial ischemia or myocardial infarction (MI) related most often to atherothrombotic coronary obstruction. For practical purposes, ACS can be divided into ST-segment elevation ACS (STE-ACS, or more commonly, ST-segment elevation MI [STEMI]) and non-ST-segment elevation ACS (NSTE-ACS), which includes both non-ST-segment elevation MI (NSTEMI) and unstable angina (UA). Notably, the clinical presentation and symptoms may be similar for these syndromes. From The Washington Manual of Cardiology Subspecialty Consult.

Abstract: Dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor is the treatment of choice for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients with acute coronary syndromes and for those undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions. The availability of different oral P2Y12 inhibitors (clopidogrel, prasugrel, ticagrelor) has enabled physicians to contemplate switching among therapies because of specific clinical scenarios.
