The purpose of this study is to describe the short-and long-tern (i.e. up to 2 years following the index event) AMPs in patients hospitalized for an acute coronary syndrome (i.e. STEMI or NSTE-ACS), and to document clinical outcomes, economic aspects and impact on quality of life of these AMPs in a 'real-life' setting.
