Abstract

Patients with cardiovascular disease who have acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are at risk of significant morbidity and mortality. Also, treatment of these patients in the early-phase setting has a significant financial impact on the health care system. With the existence of numerous pharmacologic agents, abundance of major clinical trials, and several nationally recognized clinical guidelines, compiling the needed reference material to make evidence-based decisions on the care of patients with ACS can be difficult for clinicians. To assist clinicians in this endeavor, we complied pertinent articles and guidelines that have shaped the current treatment of patients with ACS. Owing to the rapidly evolving body of evidence in the management of ACS, this compilation will require periodic updating.
