Author Aleksey Nikishin, Ravshanbek Kurbanov, Mahmudjon Pirnazarov

The paper describes features history, risk factors and hospital management of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in women of the Central Asia (829 ACS patients are included), and also comparison of hospital outcomes of ACS in groups of men and women.

ACS in women in the Central Asia comprises features as more non Q-wave myocardial infarction frequency, smaller adherence to treatment of dyslipidemia, more obesity degrees. Women arrive to hospital average in 4 hours after men; have more percent of the atypical form. In-hospital outcomes in men and women significantly did not differ because of general tendency to late arriving to the hospital and small quantity of revascularization procedures. The reasons of differences between men and women in the region are mostly connected to social sphere (late arriving, non-treated dyslipidemia) than to physiological peculiarities.
