Abstract:
Aims: To examine whether level of social deprivation explains the observed inter-ethnic differential in risk of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) admission, and to describe determinants and outcomes of different management patterns stratified by ethnicity. Methods: A prospective registry of consecutive patients admitted to coronary care units and medical wards of eight adjacent west London hospitals. A total of 512 patients with a diagnosis of ACS were admitted between 1 June and 31 August 1998. Level of social deprivation derived from area of residence was used to stratify cases socio-economic status, and the admitted cohort of 428 resident patients was then followed up for 45 months.
