    Abstract

    Penyakit vaskular koronari adalah punca utama mortaliti dan morbiditi di Malaysia. Pada tahun 2006, anggaran insiden sindrom koronari akut (SKA) di Malaysia adalah 141 per 100,000 penduduk dan kadar kematian pesakit di hospital adalah kira-kira 7%. Walaupun SKA berlaku kebanyakannya di kalangan pesakit yang tua, kira-kira 5 hingga 10% daripada kes-kes yang berlaku adalah pesakit muda yang berumur kurang daripada 45 tahun yang boleh mengakibatkan morbiditi yang tinggi dan menjejaskan kualiti hidup pada peringkat kehidupan yang paling produktif. Kajian ke atas SKA di kalangan pesakit muda di Malaysia adalah terhad dan hasil kajian ini diharap dapat digunapakai untuk rujukan dan penyelidikan untuk manfaat pesakit. Coronary vascular diseases are the main causes of mortality and morbidity in Malaysia. In year 2006, the estimated incidence of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in Malaysia was 141 per 100,000 population, and the inpatient mortality rate was approximately 7%. Although ACS occurs mainly in older patients, about 5 to 10% of cases occur in young patients aged less than 45 years old causing considerable morbidity and affecting the quality of life in their most productive life. Studies on ACS in young patients in Malaysia are limited and thus the result of this study will hopefully applicable for further reference and research for the benefits of patients.
