Yukti Bansal | Bipul Chandra Kalita | Saatvik Manchanda

Abstract: In ACS patients, gender-related differences in symptomatology, time of first presentation and outcomes have been observed. Hence, a clinical profile of female individuals presenting with acute coronary syndrome assumes clinical significance. All female patients admitted and diagnosed with Acute Coronary Syndrome during the study period were included in the study depending on the inclusion criteria. Statistical analysis was done by SPSS. Respective graphs and tables were made to define the distribution of age, type of ACS, distribution of various risk factors and BMI among the study population. In this study, majority of patients belonged to age group 51-70 years (62.7 %)., it was found that majority females had STEMI (46.1%).60.8 % patients had hypertension, 59.8% patients had dyslipidemia, 58.8 % patients had diabetes, 28.4% were alcoholics, 51 % were smokers, 67.6 % were post-menopausal, 52.9 % had hypothyroidism, 43.1 % had a previous history of ACS and 14.7% had a history of previous cardiac intervention. Majority females (49.0 %) had BMI more than 30 (Obese).68.6 % patients presented with typical anginal chest pain.
