     Statistics

    In 2009, acute coronary syndromes (ACS) accounted for about 80 000 hospital admissions and 10 000 deaths in Australia.Rising levels of obesity and diabetes in an ageing population suggest the number of events is likely to double by the year 2030.Randomised clinical trials have demonstrated the mortality benefit of pharmacological and procedural interventions for this condition, and cross-sectional studies have shown that better adherence to these therapies is effective in reducing mortality and morbidity.
