The challenge of acute coronary syndromes in South Africa Atherosclerotic coronary artery disease remains highly prevalent in South Africa. Whereas in the past the disease predominantly affected the white and Indian population groups, there is a slow but steady rise in the prevalence of coronary artery disease in the black African population.   Platelet adhesion, activation, and aggregation play a pivotal role in atherothrombosis. Inhibition of platelet aggregation with medical therapy, such as P2Y12 inhibitors, impairs formation and progression of thrombotic processes and is therefore of great importance in the prevention of complications in acute coronary syndromes or in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Modern challenges in acute coronary syndrome Despite a growing evidence base, gaps in knowledge and practice leave room for improvement in the treatment of acute coronary syndrome A few decades ago, there was still controversy about the importance of interruption of blood flow ver-sus myocardial tissue oxygen demand in causing.

Coping with these challenges requires the following initiatives: stepping beyond current diagnostic and management algorithms to a better performing risk stratification scheme that considers specific patient risk factors in addition to the disease risk, and a reintegration of acute coronary syndromes into the more global Challenges in Acute Coronary Syndromes book of coronary.
