The aims of this study are to identify different determinants or predictors of clinical outcomes following PCI among ACS patients in UMMC, Malaysia as well as develop a prognostic model for the risk of these outcomes following PCI. Besides that this study plans to describe the HRQOL outcome following PCI in UMMC. This study will be the first study to identify the predictors of outcomes of PCI and provide knowledge in terms of local management in Malaysia. The prognostic model can be used as a tool for stratifying patients according to the risk of outcomes and as a simple bedside scoring system. The study design is a prospective cohort study. The study population is selected from all ACS patients who are admitted to the cardiology ward and undergo PCI in the UMMC. Data collection for the study is still ongoing. The project has funded research on one DrPH candidate. The completion of the study should result in 1 DrPH thesis and 3 journal papers.
