Although it is very likely that ethnic variations in the incidence and, possibly, clinical outcome of acute coronary artery disease events exist, the causes for such differences are many and difficult to address fully, given the complex interplay of contributing factors

  • acute coronary syndromes
  • epidemiology
  • ethnic differences
  • sex differences
  • ACS, acute coronary syndromes
  • AMI, acute myocardial infarction
  • CAD, coronary artery disease
  • SMIR, Singapore Myocardial Infarction Register
