GULF ACS " Gulf Assessment of Coronary Syndromes Registry " is a regional medical database for the Arabian Gulf countries that was initiated under the auspices of Gulf Heart Association & represents a smart merger between the former Arabian Gulf ACS registry - Gulf Race - & the Saudi Arabian ACS Registry " Space Registry " .

Gulf ACS project is lead by its steering committee members who were assigned as two representative delegates from each gulf country.  The integrity of the members & the registries has yield a significant medical database that is operating in the seven Arabian gulf countries.

The main goal of this registry is to study the current practice patterns in the management of CAD patients & to assess the gap between the practice and  available evidences, thereafter, try to improve the quality of cardiac care provided to such large population.

GULF ACS study will have two main parts,

Part-1: The" In-Hospital Registry" that includes the baseline measurement of process of care, outcomes, health care services & the health care report cards/critical Pathways

Part-2: The" Clinical Follow-Up Registry" that includes a 1 month and 1 year follow-ups calculated from the last ACS admission of each patient registered in the In-Hospital registry.

This study requires filling an electronic Case Report Form (CRF) over 3 years period. then, each ACS patient will be subsequently followed up in different pre-assigned phases to precisely check on relevant case complications as well as to monitor his/her ACS condition & the measures taken.

Mission Statement

“The Right Treatment for the  

  Right Patients at the Right

  Time: Turning Evidence into

  Action in Patients with Acute

 Coronary Syndromes  (ACS)"

Our Vision

 To occupy the leading position among all the worldwide ACS registries by improving the life quality, minimizing disability, & reducing death rates of the patients suffering from acute coronary syndrome.  

Organization Structure

Several medical professional entities are integrated in GULF ACS registry & represented by the principal coordinating center, countries principal investigators, steering committee,  satellite site principal investigators, and research assistants.

The principal coordinating center is chaired by

Dr. Khalid F. AlHabib & located in King Fahad Cardiac Center, College of Medicine at King Saud University in Al-Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Project Description

Coronary artery disease (CAD) continues to claim the lives of many people worldwide and creates enormous disability for those who survive.

According to World Health Organization estimates, cardiovascular disease will be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality by the year 2020.

Developing countries will be the major contributor to this increased death and disability1,2,3,4. These WHO estimates are expected to affect the Gulf states in a major way due to recent evidence of increased risk factors among populations of the Gulf countries.

There was only few limited data concerning the prevalence and the clinical aspects of CAD in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia till recently when Al-Nozha reported a major national study on CAD in ........
