TRACE is a Multicentre Retrospective Study planned to gather follow up data for a period of 1 year in order to understand anti-thrombotic management patterns and outcomes of Acute Coronary Syndrome patients in India.

This retrospective study is designed to provide a rapid and quick analysis of the existing database of ACS patients. So as to ensure quality check in the study, a pilot study will be conducted with around 500 patients at 10 centres across India and based on the meaningful results of the pilot study, full retrospective multi-centric study will be initiated at various selected centres across India. This study will use available registry data from a defined time period of Jan 2007-Dec 2009.
