Abstract

Many agents are available to treat acute coronary syndromes (ACS), yet limited information is available about their use from a multinational perspective. The objective of this report was to describe patterns of use of antithrombotic and antiplatelet therapies in patients with the spectrum of ACS through the use of data from the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE).
