Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Antithrombotic treatments [ Time Frame: Longitudinal during 2 years after index event (phone calls to the patients at 6 weeks and each 3 months after index event) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Use of health care resources [ Time Frame: Longitudinal during 2 years after index event (phone calls to the patients at 6 weeks and each 3 months after index event) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of life [ Time Frame: At index event (baseline) and then at 6 weeks and each 3 months after index event ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Groups/Cohorts
1
Patients, older than 18, hospitalized within 24 hours of onset of symptoms and diagnosed with UA, STEMI or NSTEMI

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population

Patients hospitalized within 24 hours of onset of symptoms and diagnosed with unstable angina (UA), STEMI or non-STEMI(NSTEMI). Patients will be invited to participate by the hospital (Academic or Community) which is going to discharge the patient.

Participating investigators will belong to hospitals (Academic, Community, with/without cathlab, etc), in the proportion representing the reality of where this kind of patients are managed in each country.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of myocardial infarction or unstable angina
  • Hospitalized for the first time within 24 hours of onset of symptoms

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Presence of any condition/circumstance which in the opinion of the investigator could significantly limit the complete follow up of the patient (e.g. tourist, non-native speaker or does not understand the local language, psychiatric disturbances)
  • Current participation in a clinical trial.
