The 2018–2019 Report of the National Cardiovascular Disease – Acute Coronary Syndrome (NCVD-ACS) Registry is the 7th Report since its inception in 2006. Over the last 15 years, we gained great insight into ACS in Malaysia – from the patient profiles to clinical presentations, clinical management and prognosis.

We have gained tremendously from the previous reports of 2006, 2007–2008, 2009–2010, 2011–2013, and 2014–2015. We were able to see the trends in the way our patients present and the treatment they received. More importantly, with concerted efforts especially in getting our patients to undergo coronary angiogram and angioplasty, we have been able to reduce mortality, which is the hardest end-point.
The 2017-2018 PCI Registry is the sixth report since the inception of the Registry in 2007. This report provides information on not only the interventional cardiology practice in major cardiac centres in Malaysia but also the patients who underwent the interventional procedures.
Research Article: Sex and gender differences in presentation, treatment and outcomes in acute coronary syndrome, a 10 year study from a multi-ethnic Asian population: The Malaysian National Cardiovascular Disease Database—Acute Coronary Syndrome (NCVD-ACS
Sex and gender differences in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) have been well studied in the western population. However, limited studies have examined the trends of these differences in a multi-ethnic Asian population.
Research Article: Short and long-term mortality prediction after an cute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in Asians: A machine learning approach
Conventional risk score for predicting short and long-term mortality following an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is often not population specific.
The 2015-2016 PCI Registry is the fifth report since the inception of the Registry in 2007. This report provides information on not only the interventional cardiology practice in major cardiac centres in Malaysia but also the patients who underwent the interventional procedures. Such data is crucial as it represents facts rather than the usual estimates generated for the practicing healthcare professionals, private and public hospital administrators, policy makes, patients advocates, as well as the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. In addition to being an academic reference, the report can be used to improve quality of care, delivery of services, and healthcare planning.

This is the 5th report of the National Cardiovascular Disease-Acute Coronary Syndrome Registry (NCVD-ACS). The previous reports of 2006, 2007 – 2008, 2009 – 2010, and 2011 – 2013 have given us valuable insight into the nature and impact of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in Malaysia. Importantly, this report marks the 10th year since the inception of the NCVD-ACS Registry, a registry which is now one of the most important resource on ACS in the country, and indeed for the region.
