Introduction: Most fatal presentation of coronary artery disease (CAD) has been related to acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and we as a referral center in the country decide to launch a registry of patients with ACS to monitor the way they are managed and the way they are treated. Materials and Methods: Rajaie Cardiovascular, Medical and Research Center ACS registry (RHC-ACS registry) launched on December 2015 with enrolling all ACS patients referred or presented to the center. All patients' demographic variables, presenting symptoms, known risk factors, past medical history, past CAD records, serial ischemic electrocardiogram (ECG) changes, presenting echocardiographic data (such as left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF], valvular abnormality, and mechanical complication of myocardial infarction [MI]), laboratory assessment (biochemistry, complete blood count, cardiac markers, and inflammatory indicators), and their angiographic and angioplasty data were recorded. Results: Recordings showed in the RHC-ACS registry, most patients were men (73.2%), with mean age of 59.16 ± 11.64 years, hypertension were the most known cardiac risk factor. Most patients were non-ST elevation MI patients (43.2%), 32.8% were in premature CAD group, and typical retrosternal chest pain were complained in 83.5% of our registry population. Most patients had no new ECG changes (51.7%) and from whom with new ECG changes, anterior territory ECG changes were the most common pattern (28.2%). LVEF was reported 30% or less in 171 (16.6%) of patients. Angiographic findings revealed femoral access was most common access (63.9%), most involved vessel was left anterior descending with 49.3% of the patients, percutaneous coronary intervention was performed in 48% of patients with drug-eluting stent implantation in 99.3% of these patients, dissection was the most angiographic-related complication in our registry (1%), and in-hospital death was reported in six patients (0.5%). Conclusion: RHC-ACS registry as a real-world middle-east running ACS registry would help cardiologists justify their revascularization strategy in ACS patients and would have a promising impact in future multi-center studies.
